CEDARS offers quality care for children six weeks through 12 years through early childhood and school age programs. 

Studies have shown that quality early childhood education can have lasting benefits for children, including boosting IQ, school achievement, and social adjustment, and lowering the likelihood they'll repeat a grade.

CEDARS programs are nationally accredited by the  Council on Accreditation (COA) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

  • With a kindergarten-readiness curriculum, CEDARS Early Childhood Development Centers provide children with early and ongoing developmental opportunities to engage them and help them become better learners.

  • Community Learning Centers provide safe, supervised and cost-effective before- and after-school and summer enrichment activities for youth.

She knows that parenting is tough and she wants you to know you’re not alone.

When school lets out for the summer, many children are left without a safe alternative.
