Where Enlightening Strikes First!

Dear Child Development Center Families,

It is difficult to believe that we are approaching the end of this school year!   Our staff looks forward to continuing an exciting year of learning together as our children achieve their highest potential. 

It has been my privilege to assume the role of Child Development Center Principal upon the retirement of Mrs. Doris Santanello. Mrs. Santanello leaves behind a legacy of early childhood excellence and we are eager to continue her vision in the future.

The vision of the Child Development Centers is to promote the development of young children and families through comprehensive and high quality educational programs in a caring and stimulating environment.

We believe:

All of our children learn our Guidelines for Success:

Our tagline “Where Enlightening Strikes First” is our commitment to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students and through them, the future of our society.

Finally, in order for our students to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school.   A strong relationship with families will make a great difference in a child’s education. 

We look forward to a fantastic finish to a wonderful school year! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a need.



Dr. Susan Stevens

Principal, Child Development Centers
