Harvest Pointe Child Development Center (HPCDC) focuses on developing the entire being of each child. We believe that a loving foundation will encourage children to have a sense of hope and set them in the right direction toward future endeavors.
Prior to being independent, a child must know that he or she can depend on adults and a predictable environment. Each child's safety and security is a primary focus of HPCDC. Children are treated with respect and kindness. We recognize that children develop at different rates and have different interest. Small group size and appropriate teacher-child ratios allow for meeting the individual needs of each child.
Learning and playing are not limited to the classrooms. Children of all ages participate in the outdoor environment each day.
Our aim is that we will build a strong working relationship with each parent for the advancement of each child.
