Oh, You Thought I Was Done!?
“Oh, you thought I was done!? No, we still have something to do … Shhh, first we need to make sure no one is here. Go look around the corner and check.”
April: “Okay Mom, I don’t see anyone.”
“Okay, now … on your mark!”
April: “What, why, where … what are we doing?!!”

New website, new name, new logo ... but it's still the same Child Development Centre that has been working in the heart of your community for over fifty years!
