Monthly Messages

Each month, I will be creating this "monthly message" to share important information, showcase upcoming events and share some interesting nuggets for parents/guardians of preschool aged children.


I hope you find this helpful.


Want Some Ideas on How to Support Literacy Development in Your Child; Check this Out.


“Supporting Early Literacy at Home: A Parent's Guide” is a series of online, self-paced learning modules designed to provide information for parents and caregivers so that they can support their children’s early literacy development. Research shows that parent/caregiver involvement is the number one predictor of early literacy success as well as future academic success. Each learning module will provide information and tips (strategies) that will arm parents/caregivers with tools to support children from birth through the beginning years of school.

Big picture

Conscious Discipline

The Child Development Centers practice Conscious Discipline which means our goal is to thoroughly meet all of your child's needs, from academic learning to social-emotional growth. We believe that all people-including young children- learn more, produce more, show more compassion and feel better about themselves when they are in an environment that is caring, connected and safe. For these reasons and many more, we utilize a research-backed, evidence-based program called Conscious Discipline that is based on safety, connection and problem solving.


Throughout this school year we will share more about how you can partner with us to bring more safety, connection and problem solving to your child and their world.
