Our Philosophy

"Cedar Valley Preschool and Child Care Center has been a blessing to our family. The teachers and staff have created a wonderful place for my children to grow and learn each day. From their ABCs and 123s to growing their own veggies for lunch, Cedar Valley Preschool has created a number of wonderful opportunities for the children." CFMom

Our early childhood education program supports structured growth, based on individual needs, to prepare children for school, life-long learning, and community citizenship.

From the Director:  "Our center provides child care for children with varying backgrounds and special needs.  First and foremost, we encourage you as parents to shop expeditiously for a quality center for your child's best interests. 

We strive for consistency as it provides continuity and security for children.   

We value ethnic, demographic and developmental diversity.  We will assist wherever possible to support diverse family and special needs. 

We believe early childhood education, both in the classroom and in nature, balances behavior and supports harmony between a child’s intellectual curiosity and creative expression.

We support continuous training and development for our staff in areas of teaching, learning, caring and protection of your child.  All teachers are certified in CPR, First Aid, Mandatory Reporter and Universal Precautions.  Staff eagerly participate in ongoing professional development.

We utilize the talents of our staff, Board of Directors, volunteers and community to build the healthiest, most sustainable place for children. 

We never forget that…First, Your Child…is a child.  Everything else about them, their unique attributes, challenges, and personalities, are to be treasured.

Any questions please call or email us! If you would like to visit the center for the first time, please call us to arrange a family tour and we would be happy to answer your questions during this visit. We are waiting to hear from you.
