Saint Francis Child Development Center

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Saint Francis Child Development Center! We are a private center for the employees at Saint Francis Hospital, VA Hospital and Department of Human Services. With a world-class curriculum and a quaint, but state-of-the-art facility, we offer something for everyone and strive to make learning fun. Our library fosters a love of reading; our age-specific movement zones promote an active lifestyle and motor skill development; and our warm, friendly places — from playgrounds to reading nooks — give your child space to grow and learn. And we love working with parents, too. Join a parent education class to better understand your child’s needs…and stop by to meet our friendly staff and see how we can be a great fit for your family!

Our Community

Our families come from nearby communities, and many are employees of Saint Francis Health System, Veteran Affairs Hospital, and the Dept. of Human Services. Located just off of Highway 69, we're easy to get to for drop-off and pick-up.


Our Graduates

Children graduate Bright Horizons programs with the skills they need to succeed in private or public school. In surveys, kindergarten and first grade teachers report that Bright Horizons graduates are enthusiastic learners who are socially and academically ready for the years ahead.
