is happening at the Center for Child Development!
Each month, the children at the Center for Child Development are exploring topics that are related to STEAM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) in an effort to align educational experiences for students from the preschool level to the college level. The Center wants to make this a community effort with great representation from our colleagues at the University of Akron.
The Center for Child Development offers both Toddler and Preschool programs. Our bright, cheerful classrooms offer quality programs and learning experiences for each child, based on the Creative Curriculum framework. Our teachers meet all licensing requirements by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
