What is the Children’s Center?
The Children’s Center is a nonprofit agency that provides children ages birth to five with early childhood education services, such as high-quality childcare. We nurture and educate children as well as their families—because we believe family is the best teacher and decision maker. Our programs serve a diverse Western Tidewater community, including children with disabilities and developmental delays.
