Child Development Center

Latest News >>

Metairie Ridge Presbyterian Church's Child Development Center is designed for young children from 12 months old and walking through pre-kindergarten. As a part of the church's ministry to the community the CDC is operated by the Christian Growth and Nurture Committee and supported by the entire Metairie Ridge community.

The CDC is open from September through May on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We have an eight-week summer session in June and July with limited registration. We are closed for the month of August.

Children are placed in age-appropriate classes. Our groupings are designed to coincide with the Jefferson Parish School System's beginning dates for school. Children participate in art projects, painting, stories, songs, outside play, and free play. Field trips are planned for older children.

About Our Director
Mrs. Darlene M. Evans has been with the Metairie Ridge preschool since 1981 and has been its director since 1990. She has a B.S. in Elementary Education and taught elementary school students for five years before coming to Metairie Ridge.
