Porter's Day Care and Educational Center (PDCEC) is charged with caring for children at their most rapid period of growth. It is our goal to work towards the development of secure and confident children who will make a contribution to our society.

Points Of Pride

Each child develops mentally, physically, socially and emotional at his/her own rate. This is a continuous process, which needs to be guided and directed, but not hurried. In planning experiences and adapting materials to meet individual growth patterns, Porter’s Day Care must guide the child at his/her own rate of learning.
