Helping Young Children and Families Reach Their Full Potential

Founded in 1967, Guilford Child Development has successfully continued a legacy of providing the building blocks for school and life success! In collaboration with numerous community partners, we offer five distinct, highly-successful, supportive, family-centered programs that combine to help many young children and families throughout Guilford County reach their full potential.


Providing Preschool, Child Care, and Adult Education Opportunities

Guilford Child Development gives many underserved young children in Guilford County a quality preschool experience; provides regional information and referral for quality child care; offers a low-income, first-time mother a better future for her and her baby; and creates opportunities for immigrant/minority families to enhance their education, their socialization, and their literacy skills.
