The Martin Luther King Jr. Child Development Center is a non-profit agency sponsored by an autonomous ecumenical Board of Directors. Our primary purpose is to provide services and support to the children and families of Southern New Jersey in areas related to Early Care and Education, School-aged Child Care, Positive Child Growth and Development, Positive Parenting, and Enriched Community Participation.
To that end, we serve children whose parents are working, attending school or job training programs, and children identified as having certain special needs. This is done in an effort to respect, support and maintain the sanctity of all families.

The philosophy of practice in our Care Programs is one where the curriculum for each Center is developed with the aim of maximizing the forces that influence the development of positive self-esteem and feelings of competence. We strongly believe that children learn best through Play, By Doing, and by Positive Interaction with Caring and Committed Adults.
We strongly believe in our Families, and are a Family-First Center who partners with families in helping their children become the very best they can be. This is accomplished by providing a solid foundation of early care and education, and developmental supports and experiences designed to encourage success in childrens overall growth and development. We place particular emphasis on ensuring that all work with children is both individualized and developmentally appropriate.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Child Development Center is an environment in which there exists great joy and delight in working with children. It is a setting that encourages childrens experimentation and exploration by presenting a number of experiences full of challenging, concrete, and natural activities that promote cognitive, physical, social and emotional growth and development.
The Centers ensure that children are learning in a clean and safe environment, one that is nurturing and loving, and promotes health in daily living. The Centers support and facilitate childrens natural need to move and explore in their environment as they learn.
