We encourage you to apply, however, because of the demand for high quality childcare, there is a waiting list.  Also, please view our list of other child development centers which are accredited by the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). 

If you would like to be placed on our waiting list, please complete and return the following:

  • Waiting List Application (PDF)
  • $30 non-refundable application fee per child - (Cash, check or money order accepted. 
    No credit cards accepted at this time.)

We cannot guarantee you an immediate space.  Our average wait time is 12-18 months.  If we have a space available, we will notify the affiliated parent by the information listed on the waiting list application.  Please contact Randy East, CDC Manager, with any information updates such as address and contact numbers.  If at any time you wish to wish to remove your children’s name from the waiting list, you must notify us in writing.
