(Notes from Our Families)

New Name. New Logo. New Website.

pcd logo

In this, our 50th Anniversary year, we wanted to celebrate our foundational and meaningful past while looking toward a bright future of growth in caring for children of all abilities through our educational and therapeutic programming. One way we are doing that is re-branding with a new name, logo and website to better engage and communicate with our community; to better reflect who we are.

We are celebrating and strengthening the partnerships that got us to where we are today, and inviting new ones to join us in our mission – Nurturing the growth and potential of every child. We are proud to remain child-centered and family-focused and in so doing will continue to engage, enrich and educate children of all abilities.

Children are meant to thrive; your partnership helps us make sure they do!
