CARE Child Development Center is a state licensed facility in operation since 1985. CARE CDC operations meet or exceed the minimum standards required by the Department of Human Resources. These standards include guidelines for organization, administration, staff, building and grounds, food service, nutrition and activities. State and city health, fire, and licensing offices routinely inspect our center.


No child shall, on the basis of race, color, religious belief, national origin, or sex, be excluded from participation, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under CARE Child Development Center's program. However, CARE CDC does not have a program available for special needs children. The department of Human Resources defines children with special needs as "children with disabling or limiting conditions which limit participation in the normal activities of the center and which may require additional supervision."


The program is for infants through age five. In addition to the regular program. CARE CDC has a private kindergarten program taught by a degreed teacher. Currently, CARE CDC also provides after school pick-up and care for children through fourth grade who attend Yale, Big Springs or Dartmouth Elementary.
