The Child Development Center is an Arkansas-approved, developmentally-appropriate program that creates a partnership with families to provide quality care and education for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age.

The CDC is also the only privately-funded 3 Star Better Beginnings program in Hot Springs.

We are located in the Christian Life Center building, just behind the main part of the church, at 218 Pratt Street.

Please call LesLee today to make an appointment to tour our center!
