Ida Thompson Child Development Program

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome! Since 1974, our expert staff has been helping children develop a lifelong love of learning through educational activities and learning-based play. Our World at Their Fingertips program nurtures your child’s creative and intellectual side through art, science, reading, and unstructured play. The Growing Readers nook fosters a love of literacy, and our outdoor learning areas and gardening boxes are the perfect places to explore nature. Plus, our expansive playground offers plenty of space for socialization, team-based activities, and active downtime. Come by for a tour to learn more about what we offer.
