The Children's Center

Thank you for your interest in The Children's Center at First Congregational Church, Hudson's only Christian full-day and half-day childcare and preschool. We encourage growing independence through play-based, hands-on experiences, social emotional learning and developmentally appropriate programs for two- to five-year-olds. We can't wait to meet your little learner!

Our traditional and flexible preschool opportunities allow us to fit your needs with options from 1 to 5 days a week.  We are open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (including Summer) with a healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack provided.  Our renovated indoor and outdoor play spaces and our convenient location in the heart of Hudson, make us a great option for your child’s preschool experience.

We would love to further introduce you to our center with a personalized tour! Please contact  Liz Yeakley, Director of Children’s Ministries, or call 330-342-3977 to set up a tour or get more information.
