Child Development, Inc. Schuylkill Co.

Program Overview

Child Development Inc. is a private, non-profit agency (501c3) since 1982 and a proud member of the Schuylkill United Way since 1998. We provide quality, comprehensive programs such as: Head Start, PA PreK Counts, and Keystone STAR 4 Child Care for more than 600 children and families each year. For families who are not eligible for Head Start, PA PreK Counts or child care subsidy, we provide Schuylkill United Way Scholarships and Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) PreK Scholarship to ensure that as many children as possible receive a high quality, preschool education in our county. Children, from two years of age to kindergarten, including children with disabilities, receive a comprehensive preschool education with preventative health, dental, behavioral health, and developmental screenings and needed follow-up services. We value parents as their child’s first and most important teacher.  With a strong emphasis on family involvement and supportive services, we work together with families and the community to prepare each child for a successful transition to kindergarten and a lifetime of learning.

Our centers are located in  Ashland, Mahanoy City, Pottsville, Saint Clair, Schuylkill Haven, Shenandoah and Tamaqua. All centers have been designated as Keystone STAR 4 – the highest level of quality in PA. Child Development Inc. has received annual state recognition since 2011 by Pennsylvania Early Intervention Technical Assistance for implementation of program-wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) at Tier 1 (universal level). In May 2018, we achieved recognition for implementation of program-wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) at Tier 1 (universal level) and  Tier 2 level with fidelity in all of our classrooms.
