Child Development Services of Murfreesboro offers a safe and positive developmental environment for children through adults who learn in alternative ways. For parents who have children not developing typically, the challenges faced can seem insurmountable given the standard resources available. CDS partners with parents and families to help their child thrive in their day-to-day life and community by providing learning experiences that address their individual needs, helping them to realize their best self.

At CDS, we evaluate the needs of each learner and create a custom roadmap for their path to success. We develop a comprehensive picture of where a learner is developmentally before they join us and find a way to meet them where they are. They join a developmentally appropriate environment, staffed with highly experienced educators, where they can learn and grow alongside other children, both typically developing and with special needs. Our specially designed in-house therapy sessions help learners and their families work together to create a solid path and support them on the journey.

We operate on the principle that the proper support, guidance, and education have a powerful impact on your child’s future.

With our well-trained staff and specialized facility, your child will thrive in a safe, loving, and developmentally appropriate environment.
