Welcome to St. Philip Neri Child Development Center


Our goals are designed to be age and developmentally appropriate to optimize the preschooler’s learning experience.

To provide a safe, nurturing child-centered environment.

To play and create a program based on the developmental milestones in a young child’s life, using appropriate lessons and activities to foster his or her developmental growth.

To provide a program that will nurture confidence, learning, and caring.

To show children and their families how special they are to us and God each day.


Welcome to St. Philip Neri Child Development Center’s Preschool Program in Fort Mill, SC.

We believe that each child is unique and is a special gift from God. We focus on developing social and school behaviors in a nurturing Christian environment while gentle guiding each child to his/her potential spiritually, socially and academically.  Preschool is a time for rapid growth and development. It is a time for preparation for future success in school and in life. We want each child’s first experience with school to be a positive one and we look forward to helping them succeed on this life long journey! 

We will help each child to discover and explore the world around him or her through a developmental, hands-on approach to learning.  Communication is very important to us. We want you to feel free to visit us at any time. We welcome parents to become actively involved in your child’s education. When you are involved, everyone benefits.
