East African Development Center 

Voices of tomorrow proudly presents East African Development Center (EADC). EADC is a preschool program, where we are dedicated to ensuring that every aspect of the program
advances racial equity and social justice of all children.

Our goal is to create a safe, supportive, and stimulating environment that encourages the social/emotional, physical, and mental development of young children through creative play, while nurturing each child’s sense of accomplishment and personal growth. Our daily activities are designed as a foundation for your child’s early development. Children learn
through interactive play, we provide an environment that is conducive to this goal. Activities include but not limited to: art, science, pre-reading, and math skills, Dramatic play, music,
language, and writing development. We stress the utilization of all senses for the most efficient learning experience. We ensure that all children have the opportunity for small and
large muscle development as well as cognitive development, while engaging individual and group interactions.

EADC is a bilingual and bicultural preschool program. We strive in cultivating the identity of the African child. VOT is launching the first dual language preschool program in EADC.
The language that will be taught in the program is Somali and English. While we recognize we will have diverse children in our program, research shows that children can become
multilingual at a young age. This program will expose your child to intentional instruction in the Somali language both in receptive and expressive language. This is our opportunity to
elevate our children’s native language, prepare them academically for kindergarten, and learn how to skillfully meuniere through the school systems as bilingual-bicultural, without losing their native language.

Our teachers are also bilingual, and hold degrees in ECE. They are dedicated in the growth and development of each child that comes through the doors here at East African
Development Center.
