Crittenton Centers’ Child Development Center (CDC) offers quality child care and early education services in a family-focused environment.  Our full-service day care center offers a nurturing environment where children can learn and grow while they are given a much needed educational head start.  We are licensed to serve up to 90 children.  With hours from 6:30 am - 6:00 pm, we are able to accommodate most 1st shift work schedules.  Additional service enhancements offered in CDC include ongoing developmental assessments and screenings, individualized lesson plans, the High Reach Early Learning Curriculum©, a parent advisory board, a lending library, parent corner, community garden and walking trail!  In addition, we are an Allergy Aware Center.

The Child Development Center serves children ages six weeks to six years old from Peoria and the surrounding communities.  We do accept subsidy payments through the Department of Human Services’ Child Care Connection Program.    

Crittenton Centers gladly accepts diapers, formula, clothes, educational toys and other infant & child related items.  For a current list of needs, please click here.
