About Wyoming Child & Family Development

Wyoming Child & Family began administering programs for children and families in eastern Wyoming in 1965. Through many opportunities for growth and expansion, services are currently extended to over 700 children and their families in eight counties. Our program funding includes Head Start, Early Head Start, TANF Preschool (Discovery Preschool), and Developmental Disability Services birth to five.

We enjoy an excellent reputation for providing high quality early childhood education, designed to meet individual and community needs. This reputation is due in part to our employees who care about the children and families we serve. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children and families.

All Wyoming Child and Family Development sites are licensed by the State of Wyoming Department of Family Services and participate in the USDAs Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).
