About Redwood City Child Development Program
The Redwood City Child Development Program is a child development program serving working families. We provide:
- A comprehensive child development program which helps each child’s successful integration and participation in the family, school, and community
- A safe, healthy, child-centered learning environment, which evolves from the developmental needs of each child
- A focus on the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical needs of each child individually and in a group setting
- Encouragement to teachers, families, and the community to take an active role in a child’s learning and development
We provide a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment that contributes to the development of children, helping to meet their emotional, social, cognitive, and physical needs. Our commitment is to guide and encourage each child’s individual potential and support the involvement of families.
The RCCDP offers parent workshops and informational meetings on a regular basis throughout the year. We conduct annual surveys in order to determine which topics are of most interest to our parents. Our program has a Parent Advisory Council (PAC) which consists of a group of parents who come together every 3 months to provide support and advice to one another and to the program. The PAC organizes several social events throughout the year.
Our staff supports parents with referrals to community agencies for child care, family counseling, immigration, food programs, housing, employment, and job training.
