Child Development Centers

Our programs acknowledge children learn through active, hands-on involvement with their environment, peers, and caring adults. We respect each child’s unique interests, experiences, abilities and needs. Children are valued as individuals, as well as part of a group. Our program respects and supports the ideals, cultures, and values of families. We advocate for children, families, and the early childhood profession. Services offered at these locations include full-day care, before and after school care, and hourly child care on a space available basis.

The Staff

The CDC staff has undergone thorough background checks and screening prior to appointment. They complete extensive training in early childhood development, First Aid and CPR. Some of the employees at the center have exceeded the Air Force training requirements by completing their Child Development Associates Credential, and have college course work in early childhood education. The staff ratio is lower than state requirements allowing the opportunity for your child to receive more individualized attention.

The Curriculum

Developmentally Appropriate Practices enables our staff to provide a rich learning environment for the whole child. This curriculum is designed to promote social, affective, language, creative, cognitive, and physical development.

Food Service Information

Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks are cooked daily on the premises. By participating in the Child and Adult Care USDA Food Program, we provide nutritious home cooked meals. Children eat meals and snacks using family style dining techniques to enhance their self-help skills while molding their table manners.
