Barbara H. Curtis Center

Learn about Early Childhood Services at Methodist Home for Children

Only 2,000 days separate a child’s birth and the first day of kindergarten. So much happens in that time, and so much depends on it.

That’s why DHIC and Methodist Home for Children have partnered to open the Barbara H. Curtis Center in the heart of the redeveloped Washington Terrace community.

The Barbara H. Curtis Center expands the inclusive classroom model at MHC’s 5-star, NAEYC-accredited Jordan Child & Family Enrichment Center. It serves 75 children, ages 6 weeks through 5 years, in blended classes that bring together children with typical development, special needs, and diverse family backgrounds – all in a safe and loving environment that teaches self-discipline, problem solving, and empathy.

While their parents work, children at the Curtis Center are prepared to learn and to grow to their full God-given potential.

The result? Stronger, more secure families and multi-generational improvements in education, employment, health, and social behaviors.

The naming gift for this center was made by Don Curtis, through the family foundation, in honor of his late wife, Barbara, a lifelong advocate for children.
