Russell Child Development Center Sponsors Eight Early Childhood Programs.
Finding the Light Perinatal Support can help a parent develop a strong bond with the baby, process birth-related trauma, new parental experience, loss, and disability, and provide a safe and stable environment for you and the baby to grow together. This program is currently only offered to parents enrolled in another RCDC program.
Russell Child Development Center's Early Intervention Program is part of a statewide system that provides early intervention services to children ages birth to 36 months and their families. RCDC provides services in 13 Southwest Kansas counties.
Growing Together knows parents want to have a healthy baby and be a good parent. Growing Together Home Visitors partner with families to help each family achieve their goals. Growing Together can offer a range of services: prenatal home visits, home visits, child development information, connections to community resources, & positive parenting information.
Learn & Play Project provides parent and child activity times for children birth to five in 28 funded sites across Southwest Kansas. The play groups provide Ages and Stages screening for children, developmental information and material for parents, and encourages community-based collaboration to support the play groups.
Growing Together, Triple P, and Learn & Play are funded through the Building Blocks Early Childhood Block Grants awarded by the Kansas Children's Cabinet and Trust Fund to Russell Child Development Center.
