Department of Energy Child Development Center

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome! Our goal is to set your child up for success by providing an inspiring learning environment and engaging activities at every age and stage. Our dramatic play areas and outdoor amphitheater set the stage for creative playtime and help your child build an imagination. The outdoor classrooms and garden foster an interest in the environment with nature-inspired activities, and the movement zone encourages healthy habits through kid-friendly exercises, yoga, and dance. Plus, your child will have plenty of time to run around and develop social skills on our rooftop playground. Come take a tour to learn more!

Our centers take important steps to ensure the very best for every child, and the Health and Wellness portion of our World at Their Fingertips® curriculum incorporates lessons about these essential topics into every classroom, every day.
