Our School

At Esther Peterson Child Development Center at the Department of Labor, we expertly combine academics and structured play for students ages 6 weeks to Pre-K2 in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. Our preschool is a caring place where your child can grow, learn and thrive. Our entire staff is passionate about caring for and educating young children.

Some outstanding aspects of our school include:

  • Our NAEYC-accredited preschool uses the Links to Learning curriculum, which lays the foundation for academic success in elementary school.
  • Convenient hours of 7:30am to 6:00pm make it easy for you to pick up and drop off your child.
  • Nutritious, child-friendly breakfast, lunch and snack are included with tuition.
  • Teachers and staff are always happy to discuss your goals, needs and concerns for your child.
  • Parent boards provide daily and weekly classroom updates.
  • Monthly folder includes skills and goals, samples of your child’s work and ideas for activities to do at home.
  • ParentShare program lets teachers periodically email you a photo of your child in action.

We are conveniently located inside the Department of Labor Frances Perkins Building.
