Child Development Center

The Garden of Children

The Center serves children from ages 8 weeks to 6 years with specially designed infant, toddler and preschool classrooms, including children with special needs, emphasizing individualized developmentally appropriate learning experiences for all children. We also train adult child development students from University of La Verne and local community colleges in our hands-on laboratory site learning center. Since the 2008 expansion enrollment increased to 225. This year CDC received funding from the US Department of Education for a research and training project to train teachers and parents on the use of Conscious Discipline ®. The results to date have been remarkable, with decreases in classroom aggression and increases in pro-social behaviors and learning.
