Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church and Nursery School invite you -- our church members, past and present school families, teachers, neighbors, and friends of CCPC -- to a neighborhood celebration of 60 years of joyful community!
In 1958, the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church Weekday Nursery School opened its doors to welcome one class of 12 four year olds. Fifty years earlier, in 1908, the church was founded on Chevy Chase Circle when the area was first being developed as the nation's first suburban “streetcar” community by then Senator Francis Newlands of Nevada.
Through its school, the church’s longtime ministry to its neighbors celebrates its core tenet, “Children Our Blessing”. Thousands of families have enjoyed a joyful early childhood education at CCPC. We estimate that more than 5,000 children began their educational journey at CCPC. Sixty years later, the school has 125 children ages 18 months to 5 years with a dedicated and loving teaching staff of 22. Our Learning Through Play philosophy has stood the test of time, and CCPC has been a treasured tradition for generations of families in upper Northwest, DC. This year’s parents boast 5 alums. Who says DC is a transient community? Not so here at CCPC.
