About the Program: 

The Valley Child Development Center's mission statement is "to provide exceptional child development services to families of Red Cloud and surrounding areas by operating a high-quality center that is safe, afforable, and reliable."

We aspire to serve families in our community by providing child development services for children ages six weeks to twelve years. Our program philosophy centers around promoting positive relationships among all children and adults to encourage each child's sense of individual worth and belonging as part of a community. We aim to foster each child's ability to contribute as a responsible community member and promote each child's positive self-image and independence, while fostering neural and brain development.

Our goals are to provide: developmentally, culturally and linguistically appropriate practices inclusive of all areas of child development including social-emotional, cognitive, physical, communication, and self-help skills; promote the nutrition and health of children and protect them from illness or injury; employ and support a teaching staff that has the educational qualifications, knowledge, and professional commitment necessary to promote a safe, educational, and nurturing environment; enable families to provide positive experiences to promote brain growth; and to provide innumerable experiences for both our youngest and oldest citizens, as they engage in multi-generational interactions with residents of Cherry Corner Estates Assisted Living Facility, which will be located next door to TVCDC.
