Masonic Child Development Center

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the child care centers’ information included in the directory may not be accurate. Many centers remain closed. For specific questions about the centers, please reach out to each center directly.

Located on the grounds of Masonicare Health Center since 188, priority for enrollment is given to Masonicare employees. We work with the Birth to three program and other consultants on an as needed basis. Our learning program follow NAEYC standards. The goal of the Masonic Child Development Center is to provide a safe and healthy nurturing environment for children six weeks old until entrance into kindergarten. The childcare staff will promote security and feelings of belonging by accepting each child as a unique individual, as well as a member of the day care family. The homelike physical environment of the Center encourages children to feel comfortable in their home away from home. Parents can become involved in the Parent Committee which helps to plan educational, fun activities for the children. Parents are invited to assist the classroom teachers with special activities. The program also has an inter-generational program where students and residence of senior living meet for activities and celebrations. Breakfast and snacks are served.
