Choosing FBR Child Development Centers for Your Family
Whether it’s your first child or your fourth, finding the best childcare provider for your family can leave you feeling overwhelmed and anxious.
As parents, some of the hardest decisions lie within finding the right providers for our children. Which dentist will make teeth cleaning fun? Which pediatrician’s office will make immunizations less scary?
At the top of the list for many is selecting a childcare provider. Who can you trust to meet the emotional, social and educational needs of your child when you aren’t there?
FBR (Foundation for Behavioral Resources) Child Development Centers work with parents to nurture the development of enthusiasm, confidence and early life skills that are necessary for each child’s success.
A long-standing resource in Kalamazoo with over 40 years of expertise, the CDC has grown to six locations, partnering with local families in both Calhoun and Kalamazoo counties.
