It's all about the kids!
The Redwood City Child Development Program, an early learning center primarily serving low income families, will:
- Provide a comprehensive education program helping children's successful integration and participation in their families, schools and communities.
- Provide a safe, healthy, child-centered learning environment based on the developmental needs of children.
- Focus on the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical needs of every child as an individual and as a member of the community.
- Encourage families and the community to take an active role in their children'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 monthly to provide support and advice to one another and to the program. The PAC organizes several social events and fundraisers 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.
