Department of Energy/Germantown Child Development Center

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to our center! Our dedicated staff takes pride in encouraging a lifelong love of learning and creating fun, educational activities for every age and stage. Our World at Their Fingertips curriculum features an arts program that sparks creativity, a language program that fosters an interest in reading, a science program that stimulates curiosity, a math program that builds on fundamental math concepts, and more. With our center located on the Department of Energy's Campus, not only are we a secure center, but the children also have the access to explore our own playground, fields, trails, and even a pond.  There’s always something new to explore. Would you like to learn more? Come in to take a tour and meet our team.
