The Center for the Development of Children
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide a quality education in a fun, family like atmosphere, where children are comfortable expressing themselves and interacting with their teachers and their peers.
We strive throughout all of our activities to encourage creative thinking, sharing, consideration, respect and self-confidence, with staff that impart their passion of learning to their young students and become an extension and resource to the families we service.
We are unique in that we aim to provide a curriculum-based learning experience, while also working with our families to provide the hours and flexibility they need for their children.
Our educational program aims to prepare children for Kindergarten and is based on the Massachusetts Preschool Curriculum Framework. Within this framework, we strive to meet the needs of individual children. We encourage learning through an interactive and fun based curriculum, offering a variety of opportunities to learn in a creative environment.
The CDC works to meet the needs of all our families – we are open full time and offer a wide variety of schedules, from a few mornings a week to a full day schedule. The CDC is a private, not-for-profit corporation operated by a Board of Directors, administrative staff and professional teachers.
