Child Development and Education supports children's learning, partners with families and is a vital part of the community. We believe in providing a safe, caring atmosphere in which children explore and learn. We follow the principles of developmentally appropriate practice and provide a curriculum which supports each child's unique strengths, challenges and interests. Through intentional planning on the part of our coordinators and providers, based upon observations of each child, knowledge of child development, and collaboration with families, we will support your family child care provider in having fun learning activities for your children.
