Project Description

Every child is an individual. Yet, they all share one thing in
common – the earlier they learn how to learn, the better they’ll do throughout the rest of their lives.

UMOM’s Child Development Center serves children from six weeks to five years old. Teachers assess each child’s strengths, then create a learning plan that helps them reach developmental goals while encouraging creativity and curiosity. We partner with parents, too, to ensure the healthy learning environment continues at home.

Volunteers assist teachers with art projects, reading, singing, games and play with children ages five and younger.

Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until noon.
