Child Development Centers

Clayton Youth Enrichment’s Child Development program centers around the understanding that each child is unique, with their growth and development being of the utmost importance. Our dedicated team is committed to nurturing and supporting your child’s journey through key stages of development, ensuring a solid foundation for their future.

With low teacher-to-student ratios, Clayton staff engages children, ranging from infants through preschool, in age-appropriate learning using Frog Street curriculum. Our goal is to partner with parents so that every child is “kindergarten ready” when they graduate from our program.

  • Early Years, Lasting Impact

    In our Child Development Program, we focus on the crucial early years of a child’s life. These formative years are essential for building a solid educational and emotional base. Our curriculum is designed to encourage cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development, all while fostering a love for learning.

  • Play-Based Learning

    We believe that play is essential to a child’s development. Through play-based learning activities, children can build social skills, develop language, and enhance their cognitive abilities. Our structured yet fun approach ensures that children are engaged and excited to learn.

  • Family-Centered Care

    At Clayton, we understand the importance of family involvement in a child’s development. We maintain open communication with parents, offering resources and guidance to support their child’s growth at home. We see parents as partners in the journey of child development.

  • Safe and Supportive Environment

    Your child’s safety and well-being are our top priorities. Our facilities are designed to provide a secure and nurturing atmosphere where children can explore, learn, and grow with confidence. Our team is trained to create a positive and encouraging environment that fosters healthy development.

Join us on this exciting journey of child development, where every child’s potential is celebrated and nurtured.
