What is the Child Development Center?
The Child Development Center (CDC) opened in 1994 with the dual purpose of serving the child care needs of NC State and OSU-Mansfield students and serving as a teaching laboratory for college students preparing for careers with young children and their families.
The CDC is a federal Early Head Start (EHS) grantee, enrolling forty infants, toddlers, and pregnant women. EHS programs promote the school readiness of low-income children by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development in a learning environment that supports children’s growth in language, literacy, mathematics, science, social and emotional functioning, creative arts, physical skills, and approaches to learning; and through the provision to low-income children and their families of health, educational, nutritional, social, and other services that are determined, based on family needs assessments, to be necessary.
In our Preschool, we assure that the care and education provided to enrolled preschool children is based on Ohio‘s Early Learning and Development Standards and school readiness goals. These describe essential early concepts, understandings, and skills for children; set expectations for end-of-preschool experiences; and represent the potential of ALL children. Staff also assures that support is provided in accessing health care and other resources for families of enrolled children.
The Child Development Center is licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and in 2012, achieved reaccreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children, following initial accreditation in 2002. The greatest emphasis of this accreditation is on the children‘s relationships with the staff and how the program helps each child grow and learn. An additional sign of quality services is the attainment of an initial star rating in Ohio‘s Step Up To Quality system in 2008, a 3 star rating in 2009 and a 4 star rating in 2013.
Students interested in work-study opportunities at the CDC are encouraged to call 419-755-4899—NC State or 419-755-4223—OSU.
