Child Development

The Child Development Center is licensed though the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, (IFSSA).   We are required to meet their standards for staffing, discipline, health, safety, curriculum, equipment and materials, nutrition, records, and reports.

The CDC participates in Indiana's Paths to Quality. This is a volunteered quality rating system. To learn more follow this link

We provide services to toddlers (who are 12 months old, can walk independently and can drink from a “sippy” cup) through kindergarten.  During the summer we also provide services to school age children from 6 – 9 years old.

Our teaching staff is educated, experienced early childhood professionals.  Their knowledge of developmentally appropriate practice along with their strong foundation in child development allows them to provide high quality early learning experiences for each child.
