Embark on a Learning Adventure with CDC!

At Child Development Centers (CDC), we believe in nurturing young minds and fostering a lifelong love for learning. That's why we extend a warm invitation to students across all three counties to shadow our centers.

During these shadowing experiences, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in our dynamic learning environments, where curiosity thrives and new skills are cultivated every day. From engaging classroom activities to interactive learning sessions, our centers provide a rich educational experience that inspires and empowers students to explore the world around them.

By shadowing at CDC, students not only develop a passion for learning but also acquire valuable skills that will benefit them throughout their academic journey and beyond. Whether it's building social connections, honing critical thinking abilities, or fostering creativity, our shadowing program offers a unique and enriching opportunity for students to grow and flourish. Join us at CDC and discover the joy of learning in action!
