Child Development Division

The first five years of a child’s life are critical to their health and success. Our six centers provide nurturing and affordable early education. Child Development Division is part of the Community Bridges family of programs. (Para Español, desplácese hacia abajo y en el icono de Google seleccione "Spanish."

About Us

For Children:

Through positive guidance, dynamic curriculum, and a bilingual program, we create a foundation for children's healthy development and school readiness. We work with children to foster: a love of learning; literacy and numeracy skills, social and emotional development; curiosity, exploration and creativity; cooperation and collaboration; problem solving skills; and respect for self, family, community and the environment.

For Families:

We know that parents are the experts of their own children. We provide opportunities and resources for families to gain knowledge, strengthen parenting skills, share information, and develop partnerships within the community. Part-time and full-day care are available. Fees are based on a sliding scale, and we offer subsidized care for qualified, low-income families.

Our Teachers:

We know that a good teacher is one who travels the winding road with the child as a guide and companion, rather than as the 'smart' leader who must control the child's behavior. Our centers maintain low teacher-to-child ratios of 1:8 for preschoolers and 1:4 for toddlers. We offer developmentally, culturally and linguistically appropriate play-based programs, catering to the unique needs of each child.

Our Qualifications:

We are proud to maintain the highest standards for our centers. Each member of our teaching staff is: (1) Interactive and engaged in each child's learning; (2) CPR and First Aid certified, and trained in the latest Health and Safety practices; (3) Health screened, TB tested, and fingerprinted with clearance as required by Community Care Licensing.

"I love everything about this place. The teachers love the kids and they take care of them, emotionally. It's like taking them to Grandma's house. I don't even feel bad leaving them here all day. I go to work, so this frees up time for me to do that. I know I just can't find the same quality anywhere else. This is a school setting, it's going to prepare them for kindergarten. This is the beginning of everything...”
