Beaufort County Developmental Center’s five-star licensed Child Development Center (CDC) provides preschool and child care services to children with and without disabilities from birth through age 12. This integration offers the advantage of lower teacher/child ratios, the opportunity to be around children who are different but very much alike, and the expertise of a highly trained teaching staff. In every situation, services are designed around each child’s specific needs and can include intensive one-on-one or group training and therapies, and family support and training. In combination, all of these services are designed to enhance and build on the child’s skills while promoting an increased level of independence.

Developmental day activities are designed to help delayed children meet the accepted or expected milestones in child development. The day program offers services for children from birth to age 5 who are at-risk for developmental disabilities. Families are referred by the public school system and other educational or human service agencies. The early identification and screening provided often leads to improved performance and higher accomplishments later in life.

The Child Development Center is a division of the Beaufort County Development Center, Inc. who provides services to adult and children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. In addition to services at the Child Development Center we offer Adult Day Vocational Programming, Supportive Employment and Job Coaching, Innovations Waiver, Adult Community Inclusion, 2 Group Living Moderate homes, Supervised Living Apartment. In addition, BCDC operates the Beaufort Area Transit System (BATS). We have a rich 42-year history of providing services that promote acceptance of differences, a healthy expression of strengths and needs, and supports to parents for the growth and proper development of their children.
