New Parents

The Thurgood Marshall Child Development Center is designed to meet the emotional, social, physical, and intellectual needs of children in a safe, home-like and loving environment. The unique characteristics of each individual child are valued in our center. Each child′s interests and developmental advances are nurtured by our well-trained and talented staff. Childhood should be a time of joy, love, and adventure. At our center, we appreciate children - their diversity, their challenges, their successes - and we enjoy them.

Our center is a “Home away from home” for both children and their parents. Excellent communication with parents is a top priority. Parents′ instructions are carefully followed when feeding and diapering the children. With daily communication through conversation and written notes, the staff and parents form a team to help each child′s day run smoothly. In addition to daily communications with the parents, our center produces a monthly newsletter. Parenting workshops and parent get-togethers are sponsored by the center. Parents are always welcome to drop in at the center anytime during the day, and we welcome your volunteer time.
