I am delighted that you are taking the time to learn about The Village Child Development Center. I conceived the idea of The Village from a place that runs deeper than just having a love for children. After working as a Spanish teacher with students from underprivileged and affluent backgrounds, I quickly learned that the educational gap between the two groups begins at birth. My goal is to offer meaningful educational experiences that expose students to various sectors of life during their most impressionable years, in an effort to bridge that gap. The stakes are high for today’s children, and a solid foundation must begin with high quality child care providers. My experience as a second language speaker makes me confident that instruction in two languages will increase the chances of success for students and make them greater assets to our community. Developmentally appropriate practices, high-quality play experiences, and measurable resources are my promise to you and your child. I look forward to offering a first-class educational experience as your family joins The Village family!
Yours in Education,
The mission of the Village Child Development Center is to set the standard for quality education and caregiving in our community. We work to educate the whole child and thus educate the entire village.
At the Village Child Development Center, we believe that it truly takes a village to raise a child. We are committed to taking responsibility for the children in our community (village) by nurturing their cognitive, emotional, physical and social development through a rigorous curriculum and stimulating experiences. Our dual language program serves native English and Spanish-speaking students, and will help them leverage the long-term advantages of bilingualism and cultural diversity. We lay the foundation for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age to become lifelong learners and valuable members in society. We work with our families to restore communities through routine parent and caregiver training so that their children will flourish in any village.
