Before employees work in the classroom, they undergo an intensive New Employee Orientation which includes safety and emergency procedures, sanitation and health practices, and guidance techniques.


We are responsible for supporting the development of the whole child, meaning all areas of development are considered inter-related and equally important. Our program acknowledges that children learn through active, hands-on involvement with their environment, peers, and caring adults. We respect each child’s unique interest, experiences, abilities and needs, thus allowing us to be responsive to and appropriate for each child. Children are valued as individuals, as well as part of a group.


Parents/Guardians are encouraged to participate in class activities, field trips and the Parent Advisory Board. Parent University classes are offered throughout the year at the multiple centers. Local information in the Anchorage community is also available.


Registration for the Child Development Centers is handled through After we confirm your priority, parents/guardians will be contacted by the Child Development Center when a space is available. Parents will have 48 hours to accept that space via, and come to the Child Development Center to begin the formal registration process. After the space has been offered, the parent/guardian will attend a scheduled mandatory orientation.
