From the Director:

The Heights Child Development Center uses the Weekday Early Education Curriculum as the basis for our teaching curriculum. The teachers will enhance this material with other academic resources. Eight basic concepts: God, Jese, Bible, church, family, self, others, and the natural world. Learning Centers include: art, blocks, puzzles, manipulatives, nature, music, home-living, and fine motor/writing.
