Child Development Center

Children are the heartbeat of our community and the reason we do what we do.

High quality early learning experiences prepare children for success.  The Child Development Center features six state-of-the-art classrooms and a natural playground designed to maximize learning indoors and out for infant, toddler and preschool aged children.

2405 Tulare St., Suite 100, Fresno, CA 93721
7:00 am – 6:00 pm

Note: Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Child Development Center is operating at reduced capacity.

Our staff is committed to relationship-based, individualized care for each child enrolled. Our goal is to ensure all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential as they explore, learn and grow.

The center also serves as a demonstration site and innovation lab for early childhood professionals and students.  It offers observation areas and on-site training opportunities to learn about the program’s approach to high-quality care and utilization of a blended-funding model.

The Center represents a unique partnership between First 5 Fresno County and the Fresno County Office of Education. As a part of its strategic plan, First 5 Fresno County built the Lighthouse for Children and is providing Fresno County Office of Education the space to operate the Center.
