The Infant Development Center is a private, nonprofit corporation committed to providing child care services to families in the community. It is governed by a Board of Directors composed of current parents, staff and community members. We are funded solely by tuition and fund raising efforts by the Board of Directors and parent body. The Board of Directors meets monthly. Parent input on school policy and governance are a key ingredient in maintaining a quality child care program. Annual elections to the Board of Directors for a one-year term are held every September. The Board hires a director who has responsibility for the overall program.

We believe that children who spend the day apart from their parents benefit from an intimate, involved setting. The philosophy of our early childhood program rests on the importance of:

  • Primary attachments and the relationships between children, parents, and teachers
  • Respect of all children as competent and capable people
  • Provision of a safe, predictable, interesting and aesthetic environment
  • Respect and response to the uniqueness of each child
  • Excellent early childhood professionals.

We believe children are naturally motivated to learn. A supportive, stimulating atmosphere with room for the child’s input and interest is optimal. As a full-time day care center, it is our responsibility and our goal to create a safe, child-centered environment. We seek to balance various ingredients of early childhood philosophies into an exemplary program. Our approach gives attention to emotional, social, physical, creative and cognitive development. Since we also believe that children who spend the day apart from their parents need a more intimate, involved setting than the traditional Preschool environment, we emphasize relationships among children, parents and teachers and continuity.
