St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development is a non-sectarian agency that provides a broad spectrum of services to children and their families. Originally founded as a preschool in the basement of St. David’s Episcopal Church, St. David’s Center officially separated from the church in 1990 and is no longer affiliated with any religious faith.
