Child Development Services

Beaufort County Developmental Center

We Believe

that all children should have the opportunity to enter school on an even footing with their peers. We know that early intervention can improve or eliminate many developmental delays.

Child Development Services

The mission of the CDC is to provide an inclusive setting (serving children with and without disabilities) that promotes acceptance of differences, a healthy expression of strengths and needs, and supports to parents for the growth and proper development of their children by providing opportunities for independence, readiness, interactions, and challenges.
