Florence Fuller Child Development Centers, Inc.
Last updated on July 7, 2014

Logo

As a child development center, we are committed to provide inclusive, multicultural quality child care and comprehensive family support services in preparation for a lifetime of positive learning. We serve economically disadvantaged families in which parents are in career training, attending school, maintaining gainful employment, or disabled. We show respect to our children and families, honor their differences and empower them to excel.

Description:
The Florence Fuller Child Development Centers are dedicated to serving children and families from low-income households. In order for these children to start their educations on par with those who have more economic advantages, the Centers strive to guide the whole child socially, physically, emotionally and academically in preparation for a lifetime of positive learning experiences. We serve children from 1 month to 12 years old. Children ages 1 month to 5 years old receive developmentally appropriate education so that they are ready to enter kindergarten as healthy, intelligent, and disciplined students.
Day Camp/School Age Program: This program provides after school programming four hours per day on school days and full days on school recesses. Children ages 6 to 12 years old are provided a safe haven until their parents return from work, receive help with their homework and enjoy stimulating activities such as arts and crafts, sports, and field trips. Children are divided into small groups according to age and development level to ensure that each receives individual attention. The summer camp provides care and activities for school age children. The children enjoy activities such as outdoor sports, field trips and appreciation of nature through observation.

History:
The center is the brainchild of Dorothy Fleegler, a volunteer tutor who realized that poverty-stricken children would start their education at an extreme disadvantage. In 1968, she approached her friends James and Florence Fuller for the initial funds to build a child development center, which they did in Florence's name. It was Dorothy's vision to have educational programs such as those now offered for a range of ages, from newborns up to school age plus college scholarships for children raised at the center. The nonprofit 501(c)(3)organization was incorporated in 1971.
