Covina Development Center (CDC) was originally established in 1957 by parents who could not find programs for their children with Developmental Disabilities. CDC was one of six programs sponsored by the ARC of San Gabriel Valley until 1997 when ARC discontinued operations. At that time, a new California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation was formed, and CDC became an independent school to serve young children with and without special needs.

We are a California nonprofit public-benefit corporation, licensed with Community Care Licensing, and vendors with the Regional Center system. Also, CDC provides childcare services to several community agencies, the child development division of the State Department of Education, and private clients.

CDC is a nondiscriminatory organization that provides each student and family programs, privileges, rights, and activities, regardless of a child’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
