At Child Development Centers and Continuing Development Incorporated, it is our mission to enrich children`s lives through quality, accredited child development programs and a commitment to developmentally appropriate practice. Our programs put children at the center of an interconnected circle of families, teacher and the community.
Preschool is a time of amazing growth—physical, social-emotional and intellectual. Every time a child asks “why”, explores a new object, interacts with others or tries something for the first time he/she is learning about the environment, people, and concepts that he/she`ll continue to build competence with for the rest of his/her life. Our teachers know and celebrate this in every aspect of our preschool programs.
We incorporate the HighScope and Reggio Emilia approaches and are guided by the California Desired Results assessment process, Learning Foundations and Curriculum Frameworks. These approaches share some key beliefs: children are inherently competent, they learn best through meaningful experiences in a rich environment with peers and knowledgeable adults as guides and collaborators.
