Early Learning

CDCLA uses the High/Scope Curriculum at each of our Child Development Centers. Our programs are developmentally appropriate and the staff is highly qualified. Children are allowed to develop at their own rate and are encouraged to make choices.

  • We have a balance of indoor and outdoor activities each day. 

  • All children are encouraged to participate in all activities. 

  • We have a balance of teacher-initiated and child-initiated activities.

  • Teachers conduct developmental assessments of each child twice each year to help us better serve the needs of the children and the families.
