The warm and caring staff at Saint Agnes Child Development Center has taught, nurtured and supported thousands of Saint Agnes families over the past three decades, earning Saint Agnes the First 5 of Fresno County Child-Friendly Business Award in 2011.
From Infants to Pre-Kindergarten (6-weeks to 6 years old), our unique programs are specially designed to expand children's intellect, creativity, social skills and problem-solving capabilities. With an experienced staff of more than 40 childcare professionals, many of whom have been teaching at the center since it first opened, parents can trust that their little ones are in the most capable and caring hands. No other local program offers a more progressive educational program - developed and supervised by lead teachers with support from other early childhood education professionals.
