The Village Child Development Center

We are now accepting applications for our newest location in the lower village, right next to the Village Center.



Center Framework

We believe movement and dramatic play is essential to learning and development.  We take pride in our ability to apply an inquiry based learning structure to promote language, physical development and curiosity. 

Basic Framework.  We respect each child's routine and attempt to mimic the home routine to avoid confusion and family time disruption.
