Child Development Center

 Child Development Programs at UMCH surround the family with caring accredited staff, curriculum, and enrichment to help with success in school and in life.

Taamara Belton

Director of Child Development


Welcome to our Child Development Center. I would love to connect with you, show you our Center and talk about how we can help your child build a solid foundation for growth and education success.

Our programs are offered for children ages 0-5, Monday through Friday from 6:00 am - 6:00 pm.

As a NAEYC accredited program, we offer the highest caliber program that fosters learning and compassion. Only 6% of child care centers in Michigan and 10% in the nation are nationally accredited. The CDC employs a research-based curriculum utilizing best practices for early childhood development.

Let's talk soon!
