From Our Website

Established in 1965, CDR provides early intervention services for children aged 0-3 and their families throughout the Historic Triangle, including Williamsburg, James City County, York County and Poquoson. CDR is a comprehensive resource for parents, teachers and physicians. CDR is so thankful to our dedicated volunteers who help in so many ways! Your priceless gifts of time, talent, and resources create a stronger community and brighter future for CDR kids, and for that, we are so grateful. When little Franco was born, his parents learned that their son had significant physical challenges.


Established in 1965, Child Development Resources (CDR) serves more than 1,400 children and their families each year. CDR is a comprehensive resource for physicians, teachers, and parents - in fact, for anyone who has a question about an infant or toddler - in Williamsburg, James City County, York County, and Poquoson. The future of America lies in the children of today. By providing early intervention services and making affordable, high-quality early care and education a priority, we are helping to ensure that the children of today grow up to be productive citizens of tomorrow.


Early Head Start is a federally-funded program for families of children birth to three and expectant mothers. Enrolled families receive comprehensive services including health screenings, developmental screenings and monitoring, parenting guidance, and referrals to and assistance in accessing community resources. First Steps Child Care & Development Centers provide high-quality, full-day, year-round child care for eligible infants and toddlers. More than just a child-care center, the program provides comprehensive health, development, nutrition, and parent support services.


From before the baby is born until that child reaches his or her third birthday, EHS promotes family self-reliance and healthy parent-child relationships through a range of support services for families in Williamsburg, James City, York County, and Poquoson. EHS serves infants and toddlers under the age of 3, and pregnant women. EHS programs provide intensive comprehensive child development and family support services to low-income infant and toddlers and their families. EHS programs are designed to nurture healthy attachments between parent and child (and child and caregiver).


If any organization knows how to collaborate for the greater good, it's CDR - and the two First Steps Child Care & Development Centers are examples of collaboration at its best. Located at the Griffin-Yeates Center in York County and at Lafayette High School in James City County, First Steps Centers offer high-quality child care for low-income families whose parents are working, in school, or in job training. There very young children play, grow, and learn in cheerful, stimulating classrooms of children, two highly qualified, caring teachers, and an aide.


Children are more likely to lead healthy, successful lives when both their mother and father are actively involved in their lives in positive ways. A father's presence matters! Our free Fatherhood programs support dads and families with one-on-one and group assistance with parenting, relationships, health, employment, money matters, and personal growth opportunities. We want to help you by providing support on your path to becoming a stronger father figure in a child's life. 24/7 Dads is a series of parenting workshops designed for dads and led by CDR's Fatherhood Program.


CDR is a remarkable story of the power of community. It was founded 55 years ago by volunteers from the St. Martin's Episcopal Mission's education committee. Long before anyone knew that early learning was critical for brain development, these volunteers were concerned about children in our community who had disabilities or delays and had no early childhood education program available to them. The volunteers knew instinctively that there was only a short period of opportunity for getting these very young children and their families the support they needed to learn and grow.

Volunteers are absolutely vital to CDR's success! CDR is hoping to find volunteers who know their way around a tool kit! Whether it is fixing a broken door or a leaky faucet, a volunteer who is able to help with general maintenance would be a much appreciated addition to our team!
