Welcome to Heather Park Child Development Center. We are a family owned and operated five star licensed center dedicated to providing a safe, healthy, nurturing environment that celebrates the individuality of each child.
Children learn through play, exploration and socialization with other children in a developmentally appropriate environment. Our goal is to provide each child with a sound foundation for learning by providing choices and the guidance needed to grow socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
A before and after school program is offered to parents of children in grades K-5. Transportation to and from local elementary schools is provided by Heather Park. After school, children are given a healthy snack. They begin work on homework and a variety of age-appropriate activities are offered. Teachers are available to assist with homework when needed. A homework form stating whether or not you would like your child to work on homework at the Center is included in your enrollment package. Please read this form carefully before signing. A copy for your records is provided in the Parent Handbook.
We are so pleased and excited to announce that Heather Park Child Development Center has been selected as one of four child care centers in Wake County to participate in POD – Preventing Obesity by Design. The purpose of POD is to create a multidisciplinary intervention to transform childcare Outdoor Learning Environments (OLEs) into active, productive best practice demonstrations sites. The three-year project will focus on supporting eight child care centers in Wake County through design, management, and training to create active, edible Outdoor Learning Environments that will benefit from several growing seasons.
