  • Exceeded Our Expectations ...

    Seven years ago when we found out we were expecting our first child we were faced with the reality that daycare would absolutely be a part of our daily life. It's a scary thought to consider handing over the care of your child for more than 8 hours every workday. We asked around for recommendations among our friends and co-workers and the response was overwhelming. Everyone told us we needed to check out FUMC's Child DevelopmentCenter. 7 years & 2 children later we feel so Blessed to be a part of the CDC family. They have met and exceeded our every expectation. We assumed the daycare would keep our children safe and help teach them basic developmental skills, but what we've realized is that we have a true partner in raising confident, loving children. It's hard to put into words what a relief it is to feel that the person in charge of your child's care truly loves them. In addition to helping us teach them how to love and be loved we are so pleased with the academic progress we've seen in both children. From the first infant class to our son's Pre-K class; we have been impressed with the level of education we've experienced. We consider CDC a "school" and the staff truly are teachers. I am certain CDC is the main reason our son's transition to Kindergarten was so smooth! We are forever thankful for the staff at Child Development Center and would recommend the center to all.

  • Prepared our children for multiple levels ...

    Three of our children have grown up in the Gertrude Remmel Butler Child Development Center (CDC) and now that our oldest is in the public school system, we see how well the CDC prepared him on multiple levels: education, social skills, emotional intelligence, etc. This organization has proven to our family time and time again that they don’t just work with the children, they also work with the parents on a professional and personal basis. The CDC is truly a testament to “Faith, Hope and Love.”  .
