The purpose of the Eugene Child Development Center is to provide an away-from-home child care experience that nurtures and nourishes both the individual and the group as a whole. Our program focuses on children’s developmental stages with respect to their individual levels, abilities, and interests. Additionally, children learn to cooperate and participate as a part of the group.

The Teacher's role is to nurture the child's natural curiosity and facilitate the child's efforts to learn, develop a sense of self, and problem-solve. Our teachers make up the backbone of the extended family of Eugene Child Development Center. We strive to attract and retain positive, sensitive staff members with training and experience in early childhood development and education. We maintain an environment in which staff are valued, respected, and supported.
