Welcome to Jackson Developmental Center / Jackson Children’s Services (JDC /JCS)

Where All Children Can Learn!  JDC/JCS is an agency committed to servicing a diverse group of children, ranging from typically developing children in our UPK program to children with significant special needs.  At JDC / JCS, staff works together as a team, ensuring that each child’s individual academic, social and behavioral needs are met. It is our firm belief that each child is capable of maximizing his/her full potential both academically and socially as we set high standards and expectations. JDC / JCS prides ourselves in our emotionally responsive practice where children’s self-esteem and social/emotional needs are addressed so that they are confident and ready to maximize learning experiences.

Where Families Are Partners: JDC/JCS recognizes that the family-school connection is a key factor in our children’s development. What this means is that we encourage families to share information about their child/family, which is respected and celebrated when working with their child. We establish close contact with families and maintain an open door policy. In addition, a primary focus is to empower parents in their role as advocates and educators of their children.

Our exemplary staff of caring professionals take pride in working together with parents as they become active partners in their child’s development
