Family Child Care
Monterey Road Child Development Center
Children begin to learn about themselves, their families and their community at an early age. All programs through CYS strive through art, music, field trips, stories, and games to promote this natural learning. This "total child" approach is designed to have a positive impact on all children participating. It accommodates children at their individual levels. The Monterey Road Child Development Center staff are committed to excellence in early childhood programs and encourage parents to provide comments, ideas and suggestions that may help improve service to all our patrons, children and parents alike.
We are a nationally accredited facility through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), which maintain top standards. Our staff is committed to providing a quality education through the use of the Creative Curriculum that helps them to develop quality activities for all of the developmental areas.
If you haven't seen our center, please feel free to stop by or call to schedule a tour of our facility. If you decide to register your child, a mandatory orientation must be attended by at least one parent. Several options are offered for day care.
