Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of Annandale Christian Childcare Center (also known as the “FPCA CCC”)!  Our Childcare Center’s MOTTO comes from Jesus Christ’s teaching in Matthew 19:14, where He instructs His Disciples to, “Let the Children Come to Me!”  This Christian Childcare Center is open to all children between the ages of 3 months to 12 years of age.  It is operated by the First Presbyterian Church of Annandale, which has faithfully served the greater Annandale community since 1956.

Godly Play: Making meaning through story, wonder, and play. Nurturing spiritual lives by honoring the centrality, competency, and capacity of children. A certified Godly Play instructor uses the Godly Play method to nourish spiritual and moral development in children.  The result of this approach is the  spiritual formation through playful orthodoxy. The goal is for children to enter adolescence with an inner-working model of the Christian language system that will continue to be of use as a means of maturing spiritually all one’s life. Faith practice is a life long journey. Through wondering about God’s stories, we are all nourished. .
