 OUR SERVICES

                                                                           The Marie Wilkinson Child Development Center assists low-income children through a                                                                                             continuum of care which includes academic tutoring, daycare services, emotional support,                                                                                     educational readiness, and computer technology training services.

                                                                            All children enrolled in our programs have been assigned individualized Educational Plans                                                                                      (IEPs) developed by teachers, parents, and other members of the school governing body.                                                                                     While assessing and evaluating the various IEP requirements for each individual child enrolled                                                                               in our programs, our organization takes note of children's strengths and weaknesses within the                                                                             classroom environment. All of our staff members furthermore provide children with the help                                                                                   and support needed to improve in various realms of the educational spectrum.
 

                                                                            Marie Wilkinson Child Development Center specifically serves the purpose of breaking multi-                                                                                 generational problems faced by under-resourced children and families. In support of the                                                                                        services we offer, several research studies confirm the notion that successful outcomes in                                                                                      school are positively correlated with the availability of childcare and family support services.
