Director’s Corner

Letter from the DirectorLauren Halstead

Dear Parents,

Thank you for visiting the Keystone Child Development Center website. Please contact us with any questions or to schedule a tour of our center. It would be a pleasure to discuss the many opportunities that Keystone Child Development Center can offer you and your family.

We provide the highest quality of care possible in a nurturing and stimulating environment. Our staff of highly trained teachers and child development professionals are dedicated to providing quality services. Our staff continuously furthers its education by attending training seminars to stay current in teaching methods. We are proud to offer a safe and supportive community in which children and their families can thrive.

KCDC is a Jacksonville front runner in childcare, thanks in part to its small class sizes and low student-to-teacher ratio. Children are able to receive personal attention to help keep them engaged in all classroom activities.

Keystone Child Development Center is proud to offer VPK classes for children four years of age. The VPK program is free to families and is designed to prepare children for kindergarten. Specialized VPK standards are implemented within all lesson plans to ensure kindergarten readiness. To be eligible for enrollment, your child must be four years old by Sept. 1 of the year of enrollment. Please contact us for more information regarding obtaining a VPK voucher. The State of Florida allows children to transfer to another center once per year.

Currently we are accepting children ages three months to five years.

Please contact us anytime between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. so we can arrange for you to tour our facilities and meet our staff. You can also fill out the survey below and we will contact you within one business day.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to seeing you!
