About the Child Dvelopment Center

The White Rock Child Development Center is a five-star, quality child-care program for children ages 4-5. We are proud to have achieved accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)! NAEYC has set 10 standards for early childhood programs to help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs. To earn accreditation, The CDC had to meet all 10 standards! Click this link to see details about the standards at the NAEYC website.

We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment which promotes the physical, emotional, intellectual and social development of children. The CDC strives to offer a warm, stable and healthy environment conducive to each child’s growth, development, and enrichment for families commensurate with their needs.
