We Strive For Excellence

Chester Child Development Preschool and Youth Center, Clover Hill Children’s Center, River’s Bend Preschool and Youth Center, The Children’s House, and Woodlake Child Development Center are NATIONALLY ACCREDITED by the International Academy for Private Education (IAPE), a prestigious organization dedicated to developing criteria for excellence in preschool and private education. In order to receive this distinguished accreditation, each center was evaluated by teacher training, a review of both parent and staff surveys, an intensive self-evaluation report and an onsite visit and validation process by a team of educators. All seven of our child development centers excelled in this evaluation and were recently awarded NATIONAL ACCREDITATION.

Choosing your child’s caregiver is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and each of these centers is designed to take the worry out of this decision. Our goal is to be the most highly regarded child care and early education provider that a parent can find and we pride ourselves on reaching and maintaining this goal each day. Every child is special to us and we strive to provide each one with the tools needed for a lifetime of love, laughter and learning. The moment you enter any of these innovative, educational centers, you will realize why families have trusted these child development centers with their children throughout the years. Each center provides a secure environment that offers peace of mind to parents. The teachers are nurturing professionals competently trained in the health, safety, and education of early childhood. The classrooms are warm, inspiring, dynamic, and safe settings that give each child the opportunity to discover the world around them. The academic curriculum builds a foundation for success… Joyful Hearts, Energetic Minds and Healthy Bodies.

Suzanne Wittersheim is the Co-owner of each of these centers. She and Jackie Coleman built THE CHILDREN’S HOUSE 40 years ago in Chesterfield and are still there today, now caring for the “children of the children” they served thirty or forty years ago. A true example of REPUTATION is BUILT ON EXCELLENCE!
