General Information

Our Beginning

The Campbell County Children’s Center first began operation at the First Presbyterian Church in 1969, in response to the need for child care services for children of working parents. In 1973 the child care/developmental program moved next to the Campbell County Parks & Recreation complex at 1000 Douglas Highway.  In 1980, as a result of legislation passed in 1979, Campbell County was designated as Region XIII for Preschool Developmentally Delayed Services for the State of Wyoming. The facility was expanded by 62% in February of 1980 and expanded again in 1990.  the Center was renamed Children’s Developmental Services of Campbell County in 1996, to clarify and explain the diverse services presently provided.
Our new facility opened January 3, 2000, at 1801 South 4-J Road.
