Diverse Kindergarten

Director's Welcome

At the Ridgewood Infant/Toddler Development Center, we believe that continuity in care is better for child development. While many daycares and preschool programs are limited to a particular age group, we meet the needs of children from six weeks old all the way through Pre-Kindergarten.

 

While a seamless learning experience is a key differentiator for ITDC, it is our strong educational component that makes us unique. As a program of the Ridgewood Board of Education, the center is supervised by experienced school administrators and offers a proven, education-based curriculum to prepare your child emotionally, socially, and academically to reach his or her full potential.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the Center and welcoming your child into this very special program. 

Lisa Kontos, ITDC Program Director
