CDL Faculty & Staff

Each of the three CDL classrooms (Infant, Toddler, and Prekindergarten) is under the direction of highly qualified, compassionate Lead and Assistant Teachers who provide meaningful curriculum opportunities for the children. These experiences are based on child interest and observation of development and are implemented in such a way that children are allowed the freedom to explore, take risks, and problem solve. The outdoor environment is an extension of the classroom and is often used to drive in-depth studies and projects.

Parent Education and Family Support is also provided to our Infant and Toddler Families by the Family Educator.
