St. Paul's preschool and child development center is committed to supporting the comprehensive development and care for young children.
Every child is different and requires special attention.
That is why Great Beginnings has rooms designated for each important stage in a child’s development.
We are a complete child development program that allows children to continue in a Christian environment while their parents work.
Our mission is to demonstrate God’s love, share Jesus Christ and serve others.
As an indispensable witness of the Gospel to the Rio Grande Valley, we are here for those who are lost and hurting to find friendship, forgiveness and faith.
At St. Paul Christian friends gather to serve God in love for one another, for the community and for the world.
