About us

Dorothy & Kevin Young


Our child care philosophy

Young Child Development Center, Inc. was opened in 2003 by Dorothy and Kevin Young. Our mission is to provide exceptional care for children 6 weeks through 11 years of age and to focus on intellectual, social, and emotional growth as we do so. We firmly believe:

  • In taking the time to get to know each and every child as an individual.
  • That family is the foundation for growth and development.
  • Input from families is of great value, and we highly encourage it.
  • In partnering with families to assure children have the greatest potential for success.
  • Every one of our teachers is driven by the excitement of seeing your child grow, development, learn and succeed. We are committed to an environment conducive to stimulating, diverse, hands-on learning – a commitment that led us to be the very first child care facility in Wisconsin to earn a Five Star rating through YoungStar.
