    • First Presbyterian Church Child Development Center   c/o Caroline Schaal
    • 200 West Trade St. Charlotte, NC 28202
  • Unfortunately, we are not able to accept any electronic forms of payment at this time.  You may either send a check or cash.  If sending a check please make it out to “FPC CDC”.


  • We are not able to predict how long your child may be on our wait list. Our wait times vary according to the age of the child and the size of the classroom. Please note that first priority goes to currently enrolled families and members of the First Presbyterian Church. Thank you for your patience.
  • Since we do operate from a wait list and want to increase the chance for enrolling your child, each family has the option to decline a spot twice within a six-month period. After the second decline, a family may be moved to the bottom of the wait list.
  • We welcome children who are subsidized by various means. A limited number of scholarships are available for tuition assistance for families that qualify. Please talk with our Program Director for more information.
