Because you love Life

A Place For All Children

Please find descriptions below of our classes offered.

  • Infant & Toddler Classes

    We emphasize the development of warm, positive relationships and strong bonds between children and their caregivers.  We strongly encourage one-on-one interaction and the treatment of each child as an individual.  Many opportunities are provided for sensory experiences, through observation and exploration, to enhance all areas of development.

  • Young Preschool Class

    Our Young Preschool classrooms encourage self-help skills, social, cognitive and language development skills.  Children are given the chance to choose activity areas where they may engage in a variety of mediums.  Creative movement, dramatic play, and building are just a few of the many opportunities through which they gain experiences and develop early learning skills.  Respect for each other, adults, and classroom equipment is emphasized.

  • Preschool Classes

    In Preschool, children have the opportunity to participate in school readiness enhancement skills through a variety of learning experiences and activities centers such as: construction, art, literacy, discovery, and other hands-on tools. Additional activities include music, multicultural events, outside play, games, cooking projects, intergenerational activities and much more.

    Our preschool classrooms provide a wide range of experiences that are considered age and developmentally appropriate, because a child’s transition into Kindergarten is an important time in a family’s life. Through enhanced self-help strategies, improved vocabulary, and reading readiness experiences, every pre-school child is prepared for the transition that comes with beginning school.

  • Before and After School Class

    Our center provides before and after school care to several schools in the community within a 4 mile radius.  Our program provides a safe place for children to learn and to have fun. Staff assist children with homework and provide many opportunities that reinforce the skills they are learning in school.  In addition to homework time, children are given the opportunity for outdoor play and center time.

  • Summer Camp

    The Summer Camp program operates full days from mid-June through the third week of August.  We offer the children unique and interesting programs designed around their interests and developmental needs.  Opportunities are provided for swimming, art, cooking projects, field trips, hands-on experiences and much more.  The school age children are encouraged to assist with planning their daily curriculum and establishing the rules and expectations of their class.

  • Inclusion

    Our commitment to support and educate children of all abilities makes the Child Development Center a guiding force for excellence in the care and education of all children. We believe in educating children with diverse backgrounds and various abilities, including children with special needs. We provide a high-quality learning environment, which incorporates effective practices and facilitates successful family partnerships. Our goal is to create a secure and loving environment that meets each child’s developmental needs, thereby allowing them to become successful at learning.
