The Linn County Child Development Center offers full and half day early childhood programs for children ages 2 to 5. The center also offers child development services to families with low incomes and to children with special needs, so parents can hold employment or participate in college or job training.
Highly qualified staff (PDF): All lead teachers have Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, with endorsements in Special Education. All assistant teachers have AA or CDA. Low staff turnover allows children to be cared for by a consistent group of teachers.
