A Note from Executive Director, Chris Hunt

Dear PCD Community,

Welcome to our community, where our highly trained professionals partner with families to change the trajectory of children’s lives.

We do this by nurturing and celebrating each child’s strengths and unique character. We interact in positive and healthy ways, provide innovative programming and enriched curriculum, that pave the road for each child to reach their full potential.

I know from my own personal journey that supporting a child at the earliest stages of life makes a profound impact, paving the way for lifelong learning and overall wellbeing. As a neurodivergent learner, my own journey was tenuous throughout my elementary and middle school years, with little hope given to my academic success. But in ninth grade Mrs. P entered my life and saw my potential. She invested time and energy into me, seeking to understand me and my strengths. She saw beyond my disability, and tapped into my aptitude which truly altered the trajectory of my life.

I believe that PCD is the Mrs. P for every child!

With a solid 50-year history and foundation, I invite you into our vision of growth and innovation for our future. We plan to double the number of children we serve and invest in staff development, technology, and equipment that will provide ways for every child to thrive.

It’s an exciting time to be a part of PCD’s journey, as we set the stage for our next 50 years. I invite you to join us.
