Strengthening Families… Strengthening Communities

At Child Development Institute (CDI) our mission is to help all children reach their full potential by supporting the relationships and environments that shape early development.

  • I loved it here. My 18 month old niece was able to try out just about everything and had a blast. From talking to the fishy’s, to doing puzzles, going down the slide, and playing with all the toys, it was great! We can’t wait to go back and try some of the classes.

  • I love everything about ELC. It’s clean, the staff are warm and friendly, and the programs and playspaces are engaging. I haven’t come across a better child space, paid or free.

  • A place where all children can play, explore and learn for FREE. Love it here.

  • CDI’s innovative approach, relationship-based intervention by learning through play, is exactly what Stephen needed.
