Welcome to Children First Child Development Center located in Kearneysville, West Virginia!
Conveniently located in Kearneysville, WV, just off of Rt. 9 near CharlesTown, Children First is a 6000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility designed and built with children in mind. The classrooms are large and sunlit, and filled with things children want to play with and- more importantly – can learn with!
Before you even enter CFCDC, you understand that it’s a different kind of place. Charlotte busily spins her web on a 20′ windmill, while Wilbur the Pig and Gussie the Goose look on. A farm bell tower commands attention at the front, and children ring the bell on their birthday while their classmates sing their birthday celebration song!
After passing through the doors – one for the big people and one for the little people – you understand that this place was built for kids! The main hallway is painted with a mural that represents the farming heritage of Jefferson County, and the length of the hallway is trimmed with shapes and textures and words for children to see and feel and experience the wonder.
There are six classrooms designed to meet the emerging needs of children as they grow, and three age-appropriate outdoor playgrounds – surrounded by secure fencing – to challenge their physical development.
CFCDC is proud to be a United Way agency . The United Way has been a major champion of our program, funding our start-up expenses and providing funding each year that enables CFCDC to enroll children from lower-income families. In addition to funding, United Way volunteers have donated many hours to helping us maintain our gardens, yards, and playgrounds on the annual Day of Caring.
CFCDC is open 5 days a week, from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm, and year-round except for major holidays and two in-service training days.
CHEERS – So much more than daycare!
