The Mission of Northwoods Child Development Center is to provide a happy, warm, nurturing, positive, loving, and safe environment that fosters the growth and development of the whole child. We will nurture the joy of discovery and learning in your child.

The Philosophy of Northwoods Child Development Center is to provide quality childcare and preschool education for children of parents who work outside the home. We provide a stimulating learning environment planned to meet the individual needs of the children and parents. Our major emphasis is learning through play.

Our approach is to provide a wide variety of opportunities for children to learn by experiencing concepts and ideas. Within our classrooms children can learn from several settings, learning centers, large group activities, small group activities and individual time with the teacher. During “free play” children can choose any of the centers which include: easel painting, blocks and trucks, dramatic play, puzzles, books, music, housekeeping corner, art, dramatics, manipulative learning games, science, literacy, math and water, sand and sensory play. Large and small group learning times use songs, games, language development, and fine and gross motor activities to foster skill development. We take time in our daily schedule for spontaneous discovery of the world around us, all while in a supervised and nurturing environment.
