Resources for Christian Families

At the Westchester Christian Child Care Center, we believe that being raised by a strong Christian family is the surest way to ensure that a child grows up to be a person of good character. A firm foundation of faith can help a child to learn the morals and values that will set them on the path toward a godly life. That's why we've collected these helpful resources for parents seeking to raise their children to have a strong personal relationship with the Lord. We hope that these sites will help you forge stronger bonds within your family and help you guide your children through the challenges and temptations that your children may face as they grow toward adulthood.
