The Jerry Davis Center for Children and Families, established in 1972, has been providing quality services to children and their families for over 40 years. Our New Jersey licensed childcare facility is located in Manville and easily accessible from most major Somerset County roadways.

The mission of the Jerry Davis Center for Children and Families(JDCCF) is to ensure every individual's optimal growth and development. JDCCF's comprehensive, interdisciplinary programs are designed to meet the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional needs of children who have a diverse range of abilities. These programs are staffed by dedicated professionals including teachers who may be licensed and certified in both early childhood and special education. We challenge, nurture, respect, support and inspire all participants and staff to excel and achieve their personal best.

The Center offers five instrumental programs:


Early Intervention Program provides educational and therapeutic services for children aged birth to three (3) years at home, or in an environment that is comfortable and convenient for the family

Developmental Childcare provides a safe and nurturing environment for the development of children aged 3 months to 7 years. Our classrooms include children with and without special needs in an inclusive environment. The center is open, from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m , and offers Before and After Care for children who attend Preschool Disabled Programs.

Inclusive Developmental Preschool provides exposure to kindergarten readiness activities to children in Developmental Childcare who have met their developmental milestones and have the skills to complete higher level tasks. Individual and group activities are offered including music appreciation, gym, and dance and focus on the development of communication skills.

Therapeutic Services offers evaluations and private therapy services for children from licensed and experienced Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapists as well as Special Education Teachers. A variety of therapeutic classes year round are offered to children in the community to meet children's developmental needs.

Family Support strives to enhance the quality of life for the entire family while maintaining the families right to identify their own needs and direct how supports are provided. A network of supportive services helps families face their twenty-four hour caregiving responsibilities. Services include self-hired Respite, Information & Referral, Ask the Advocate and Kid's Night Out.
