Each family that walks through the doors of Child Development Resources is on a journey—to find the skills, strength, and services to help their child learn and grow and be their child’s first and most important teacher. Some are referred by their doctor in response to a vision or hearing loss, low birth weight and prematurity, or a diagnosed genetic disorder. Others seek services because factors in their homes and family lives have made healthy child development difficult.
With one call to CDR’s 566-TOTS line, a team of teachers, therapists, and special educators are there, ready to support and help these children and their families succeed. Working directly in families’ homes, in developmental playgroups, and in our child care centers, CDR helps families develop the skills they need to navigate the challenges that lie before them.
Child Development Resources was founded in 1965 as the Williamsburg Preschool for Special Children. This was decades before research had proven the benefits of early intervention services and federal and state laws had mandated early childhood special education.
CDR is the only Early Intervention provider for infants and toddlers with disabilities or developmental delays in Williamsburg, James City County, York County, and Poquoson, and the only Early Head Start program for children who are placed at risk because of poverty or other family circumstances. To help continue our work into the next 50 years, CDR has launched a campaign to raise $1 million. The funds raised will help us continue our important work into the next 50 years! Double your donation in celebration of CDR’s 50th Anniversary and a generous donor will match up to $50,000!
Your contribution will…
• Enhance services to children and families, such as speech, occupational, and physical therapies, and early childhood and parenting education;
• Ensure that we retain and recruit first-class service providers; and
• Sustain our facilities to assure safe and nurturing environments for families we serve.
