Children & Youth Services

Through Sojourner Center’s onsite Child Development Center (CDC), children residing in shelter and transitional housing receive comprehensive care and early learning opportunities. The CDC program implements the Reggio Emilia approach to learning. Key components of the program address the effects of childhood trauma and exposure to family violence. The CDC also provides parenting classes and supports the development of resiliency skills.  


  • Every child enrolled in the CDC is assessed using the developmental screening tool, Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3). This tool allows teachers and parents to evaluate a child’s progress through developmental milestones and determine important next steps in a learning plan.
  • Through the Reggio Emilia approach to learning, children are encouraged to create their own learning experiences in a supportive, enriching environment. The self-guided curriculum encourages students to explore the principles of respect, responsibility, and community. Teachers recognize various means of communication, and document students’ thoughts and experiences throughout the learning process. This child-led approach allows children to safely explore their environments while qualified teachers foster academic readiness. Learning experiences align with Arizona’s Infant and Toddler Developmental Guidelines and Arizona Early Learning Standards.
  • The CDC has received the National Early Childhood Accreditation.
