The Child Development Center (CDC) is licensed to care for 176 children ages birth to six years. All children must have up-to-date immunizations. CDC meets the licensing standards of North Dakota and is reviewed annually. CDC believes that each child who enters must have every opportunity to grow and develop physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally in a culturally rich environment. Daily activities are planned to provide experiences in art, music, muscle development, cognitive development and socialization appropriate to individual age and development.

There are three centers that serve children of all ages:
