North Haven Child Development Center

A respectful, safe and secure environment where children’s self-concept, overall development and social skills are enhanced as they begin to understand, explore and investigate their world.

Our Mission

North Haven Child Development Center’s mission is to provide children and families with the same quality of care that they have at home and to enhance those experiences by capitalizing on the child’s extraordinary receptiveness to new learning.

We want our space to not only have a classroom feel, but also a feeling of home. In doing so, each child’s unique strengths are taken into consideration as they are nurtured, loved and intentionally stimulated to reach full potential during each developmental milestone.
