The Center for Children and Families is a play-based learning center that focuses on the whole child both individually and in group setting. Our curriculum is rich with a variety of hands-on experiences and our educational philosophy guides children to discover the world around them. Our goal is to prepare each child to leave our center well-adjusted, with a high self esteem, and ready to take on first grade socially, physically, emotionally and cognitively.
Jody Taylor Carmichael, Center Director
