Since 1978, our Child Development Center (CDC) has provided Round Lake and the surrounding communities with high-quality child care programs for ages 2 through 12. We are a full-service facility offering full-day and part-time care, including before and after school programs, for several area school districts. Our program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC ) and licensed by the DCFS. We’ve have also received the Gold Circle of Excellence from ExcelleRate Illinois. Let us care for your child in a recreational-based environment and offer you peace of mind while you work. Please Note: Preschool, kindergarten and before/after school care programs require a special registration packet. No online registration is available.
