Last updated on August 2, 2013


The West Haven Child Development Center believes that the family unit is the strongest influence in the life of the young child. Our program is designed to support the family by providing the child with a warm, secure and educationally stimulating environment. These needs are met by the use of qualified staff specifically trained in early care and education in an accredited program.

The West Haven Child Development Center, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation governed entirely by a board of directors composed of parents, educators and interested professionals from the greater New Haven region. It provides a variety of educational programs for area children ages 6 weeks to five years. The program includes full and part-day preschool and a program for children with special needs, who are included in typical classroom settings.

The West Haven Child Development Center was founded in 1978 and is celebrating its 30th year of service to the community. The program began with 45 children in three classrooms in Forest Elementary School in the Allingtown section of West Haven. In April of 1979, the agency was relocated to a newly renovated building at 201 Noble Street where it remains today. The program expanded to sixty children in July of that year. It originally served children ages 3-5 all day. Currently the program serves 130 children ages 6 weeks -5 years full and part day. Almost one-third of the children have identified special needs.
