bellbrooklogo190BellBrook Child Development Center and Rosebud Child Development Center is the vision of Teresa Tant, a resident of Grayson, Georgia who has one huge heart for children in multiple locations.

At BellBrook CDC and Rosebud CDC, we are committed to providing each child a safe, healthy and fun environment to look forward to each day. Children are our first priority

We believe that early care and learning is important to children and can help make a positive difference later in their lives

BellBrook and Rosebud staff understands that children develop and learn at their own pace, and they have individual interests. Our hands-on curriculum and daily classroom schedules allow the children time for small and large group activities, social interactions, fine and gross motor skill development and their constant need to be challenged as they are learning and having fun.

Children can choose from a variety of age-appropriate activities including art, music, story time, language development, math, science, dramatic play and outside playground activities including a water park.

Children independence, self-esteem, self-confidence and skills needed to solve problems develop as they choose and plan their activities each day. As we work with the “whole child” each day, we strive to offer them experiences and activities that stimulate them and making learning fun.

Our center offers parents an “Open-Door Policy”. We provide communication through daily activity sheets, parent memos, planned activity calendars, newsletters special events and e-mail. We strive to maintain a partnership with our parents and encourage them to get involved with their child’s classroom. BellBrook CDC and Rosebud CDC are safe and secure. Classrooms and playground are monitored by closed circuit cameras and we provide two secure entry doors with magnetic locks and key pads codes. Our playground areas are fenced and locked to provide further security.

The staff members are trained in First Aid, CPR, Fire Safety and Nutrition. Staff members are required to participate in continued education classes each year to stay abreast of current changes and new implementations in early childhood development.

Choosing to share a personal story is sometimes a courageous decision. Homelessness has been a recurring topic in the past several months with a near daily call to attention by various service organizations within Gwinnett County. The reasons vary, sometimes it is a domestic issue, sometimes it is transportation, and sometimes it is illness, but what it rarely seems to be is anything short of a last resort. Leaving your home, your children’s toys, clothes and food behind might seem like an unlikely scenario, but it is real. It is a reality each and every day here in Gwinnett.

Having been in the cosmetic industry for 17 years I have had the opportunity to see a variety of situations, products, treatments and providers and the culmination of that experience has shaped the business model of About Face Skin Care. Of course, I had heard the stories and seen the media coverage of overdone cosmetic procedures and I admit I was apprehensive about being a part of this world.

Courage in the face of hunger, fear of sleeping in your car and the very thought of possibly placing your children in an insecure situation is not something most people think about on a daily basis, but for too many, it is a reality. Homelessness is not defined by any one word. It is complex and can take place for any socioeconomic status in the blink of a pink slip. With a society living paycheck to paycheck, regardless of income, homelessness is a state that can occur within a very short amount of time. Courage in the face of fear is a start. Finding help is the next step. The Salvation Army’s Home Sweet Home program is a compassionate place to start.
