At the Family Center, children age 6 months through 5 years participate in supervised activities and experiences that encourage them to explore their environment, interact with their peers, and learn about the diversity within their community. Both full-time and part-time options are available to suit each family’s needs.
Serving approximately 56 families each year, our childcare program divides children into four groups—two mixed-age groups of infants and toddlers and two groups of preschoolers. Our child care includes a General Education program as well as a Preschool Special Education program for children with special needs. We are a fully inclusive setting, which means that children in all programs share the same classroom, and teachers individualize activities to meet each child’s physical, emotional, language, and cognitive needs.
The Family Center understands that family members are the most important people in the lives of young children. We invite and encourage family members to visit and participate throughout the day.
Applications for our child care program must be completed between September and December for entry the following year. Tuition assistance is available each year. Scholarships are based on financial need, and any family may apply.
