Celebrating 60 Years of Empowering Children!

We offer full-day preschool programs for children with and without special needs as well as early intervention and therapy services for children with special needs or developmental delays.


Our Mission

The Child Development Center of the Bluegrass is dedicated to ensuring that children with special needs reach their full potential by collaborating with families and community partners to create the highest quality home and community-based therapy services as well as preschool and child care programs that benefit both children with and without special needs.

Our philosophy is based on the principle that children are unique individuals who develop at their own pace and need a supportive, challenging environment that includes age-appropriate opportunities for learning new skills. We believe in the value of:

  1. The inclusion of children with and without special needs
  2. A team approach to services
  3. Therapies that are integrated into the context of the family or the normalized routines of the preschool or classroom
  4. Activity-based instruction
  5. Community-based education experiences



We provide early intervention services (evaluation/assessment, developmental intervention, and speech/language, occupational, and physical therapies) to children with and without special needs and full-day preschool services to children with and without special needs from age six weeks to kindergarten eligible.
