Director's Message

 Welcome to the Pilgrim Child Development Center (PCDC). I know that selecting a quality childcare and preschool provider is an extremely important decision.  You want your child to be safe, secure, loved and have fun learning as they grow. We at PCDC want that too!   We want to hear them laugh and enjoy their time with us.  We want to provide a program that will teach them about the love of Jesus along with a love for each other, respect for each other and a place that they will feel safe and cared for.

Our strong preschool program sets a solid foundation that will prepare them for the school years.  We are very proud that our children graduating to 5k have been testing at the highest level in their new schools.   We offer a half day 3k morning program, 3 or 5 days per week and an all day, 5 day per week  4k program that are taught by Lutheran Elementary/Preschool Teachers.  

 If you would like to speak with me directly you can e-mail me at: or call M-F between 6 am - 5:30 pm.  We would like to hear from you!   We would love to have you join our family! Come see what Pilgrim has to offer your child!  
                                         ~ In Christ, Joan Phillips Director

General Information

 Pilgrim Child Development Center is a Christian based Day Care and Preschool that was opened on August 21, 2000 by Pilgrim Ev. Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa. In a caring Christian environment, the spiritual needs of children and their moral development are nurtured as an essential part of their growth. Pilgrim was established to serve the growing needs of the church and neighborhood families.

  • To provide a loving and Christian atmosphere.
  • To enable young children to develop spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically.
  • To provide  opportunities for learning and social interaction through a variety of daily activities.
  • To help children develope socialization skill and healthy self-concepts.
  • To provide the best possible care and supervision while teaching and enriching their lives.

Our Philosophy

 Pilgrim Child Development Center and its staff, recognizes each child as a unique and very special child of God.  We strive to develop that child through learning activities and guidance which will enable them to build their knowledge through varied hands-on experiences. These experiences are all designed for each child's own development level, needs and interests.

Support PCDC with Scrip and more

 Support PCDC through Scrip. What is Scrip? Many businesses make available gift certificates from which a portion is received by PCDC.

Scrip Information Scrip Order Form

Some of the businesses are for things we get anyway (groceries, gasoline, hardware, and a wide variety of restaurants), so when we use Scrip, we can get our everyday needs, and support PCDC, too. Other gift certificates are things we may not use every day, but use sometimes. Shopping for back to school clothes, shoes, etc.? Get some Scrip, and shop with that. Need a gift for that person that is hard to buy for? Get him/her a gift certificate. There is likely something for everyone. And, of course,    a wide variety of restaurants.  All Scrip gift certificates yield a percent to PCDC.

Also, don't forget we are saving labels from Campbell's Soup(the back of the label with bar code), as well as bar codes from Post Cereals and Treats, Pop Secret (6 and 10 count size) and Bic products.
