Hear from parents

“As an undergraduate student at WSU Vancouver, having my two children enrolled in the Child Development Program on campus has proven to be an invaluable resource. After participating in both the preschool and kindergarten curriculum my 6-year-old is both well prepared and excited to begin first grade.”

—Kristen Shaw

“Our three children’s academic success all started with the Child Development Program. Attending this program gave them the outstanding head start to keep them engaged in learning and the social skills to thrive in a school environment. The educators of the CDP are quality, certified teachers in early childhood education who nurture the social-emotional skills and cognitive advancement of our children.

“We chose this program because of its reputation within the community as the best program for early childhood development. We stayed for seven years because it was the best investment in our children’s future.”

—Larry and Susan Thornton
