In 1985, CASA recognized the need for a daycare program to assist single mothers, staff and low-income families who work full time. Since then, more than 1,800 children have benefited from the daycare and preschool services at CASA’s Early Childhood Development Center (CDI) which promotes the holistic development of 200 children on an annual basis.
Early Childhood Development Center
The Early Childhood Development Center offers educational and daycare services for infants and children aged 45 days to 6 years old. They receive quality care and education in CASA’s beautiful and spacious facilities.
Why is the initial stage of development important? Child development refers to the changes that occur as a child grows and develops fundamental skills, values and behaviors and becomes ready to learn. They first six years of a child’s life forms the foundation that shapes their future health, happiness, growth and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and in life in general. Children learn more quickly during their early years than at any other time in life. CDI provides infants and children with the learning and education tools necessary to ensure their healthy development.
Who can attend? The service is intended for working mothers, single mothers and low income families. At present, anyone who requires this service is welcome space permitting.
