The United Living Community (ULC) Child Development Center (CDC) is a childcare facility open to children ages four weeks – 6 years. The CDC offers a unique setting for care and learning through an intergenerational environment that brings together the children and seniors of United Living Community. The intergenerational programming provides activities that increase cooperation, interaction and exchange between people of different generations as they all share talents and knowledge, whether those be newly acquired or learned over many years.
Some intergenerational activities include being paired with a "grandma" or "grandpa," group outings to parks or museums, and spontaneous curriculum-based activities.
At ULC Child Development Center, we strive to provide quality care and an educational environment that promotes the physical, intellectual, social and emotional development of each child. Our open enrollment includes infants, toddlers, preschoolers, children with special needs, before-/after-school care, drop-in care and respite care. Our classrooms are staffed with early childhood educators and trained paraprofessionals who work to create a safe, supportive, homelike environment that fosters each child's development. Days are always planned and scheduled in advance so that the children become familiar with a routine and parents are aware of what their child is doing.
We invite you to visit us at the ULC Child Development Center to take a tour of our facility and learn more about our programs. For more information, contact Sherry Oswald, Director of Intergenerational Programming, at (605) 696-7488.
