Gresham High Child Development Center Philosophy Staff at the Gresham High Child Development Center want all children to feel confident and secure enough to explore and grow in a stimulating educational and social environment. We provide the chance for all children to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills from infancy. We believe it is important to allow all children to plan, prepare, and think about their learning and their ideas. We recognize the role of play in the development of all children: play allows them to be curious, creative, inventive, and imaginative. We take pride that our structured environment encourages emotional well-being, socialization, communication, cognitive process, and gives opportunities for motor skill development through various developmental activities while using daily routines. The development and training of Center staff is a continuous process which includes attending workshops, classes, and through frequent discussions. Your child is our focus!
Gresham High School runs a preschool program within the Child Development Center. This preschool prides itself on being an educational hands-on program. We attempt to prepare children to go on to be successful in Kindergarten programs.
Our Child Development Center collaborates with the Mt. Hood Community College Early Head Start Child Care Partnerships program. This collaboration ensures that families and our program staff receive wrap-around services focused on health, social/emotional and educational supports. Medical, dental, nutrition, vision, hearing and emotional wellness screenings and services are available to all families in our program. Our partnership with EHS CCP also helps us provide diapers, wipes and other family supplies when needs arise. The Early Head Start CCP program at GHCDC is available to GBSD pregnant and parenting students with children from 6 weeks through three years of age. Please contact Julianne Standish for questions and enrollment.
