Welcome to the Child Development Center

Dear Families,

welcome imageWe look forward to sharing in the intellectual, physical, emotional and social development of your child. Partnerships with families are an important aspect of our program. We encourage your input and involvement in our program.

Our Center is licensed by the State of New Jersey Department of Children and Families. We are a part of The College of Education and work jointly with the faculty and staff from the Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education.

This Family Handbook serves as a guide and provides general information about the Child Development Center's program, policies and procedures. Please discuss any questions regarding this handbook, your child's schedule or curriculum with the Director or your child's teacher.

Thank you for choosing the Child Development Center. Together we can make this a great year for everyone. We look forward to getting to know you and your child.
