Child and Family Development Center Enrollment

Learn about enrollment requirements and items needed for the Center.

Pillars Community Health maintains a prioritized wait list for the Child and Family Development Center. Children are admitted according to parent-approved selection criteria. A child who is admitted must have a parent(s) present:

  • Proof of income
  • Immunization records
  • The child’s original birth certificate
  • A complete physical by a licensed physician
  • A dental examination

Each enrolled family attends an orientation session to learn about the philosophy, discipline guidelines, and policies of the agency and to discuss any concerns and expectations for their child/ren.

Enrollment for full-day child care is based on the following (written verification must be provided):
