In an effort to provide quality child care in southern Rowan County, Cornerstone Child Development Center opened its doors on Webb Road in September 2000. Although it was a humbling beginning, CCDC began to grow quickly and soon became a leading four star licensed child development center. In May 2006, CCDC-Main welcomed the addition of CCDC-City on Faith Road to reach out and service the central region of Rowan County. Once again, this new center proved to be a success and CCDC-City became a recognized 4 star licensed child development center. Quickly after the success of CCDC-City and with the continued success of CCDC-Main, CCDC-East on Eastville Drive in Rockwell opened its doors in September 2006 to service the eastern region of Rowan County with the same quality. Rising up to the challenge of its predecessors, CCDC-East soon became the largest growing 4 star licensed child development center in their area. With the extreme growth and demand in the county, CCDC-North, located in Spencer, emerged on the scene in March 2009 to reestablish quality child care in that area. With determination, CCDC-North proved to be just that when they received their 4 star licensing. Although there are no current plans, CCDC welcomes the opportunity to offer our services to our western Rowan County community.
Currently, Cornerstone Child Development Centers serve over 300 families in Rowan County offering high quality child care. In addition, CCDC employs over 55 full time team members and is larger than most small businesses. From our humble beginnings on Webb Rd to the extreme growth with the addition of three top performing facilities, CCDC stands firm on its commitment to be the leading child care provider in Rowan County.
