Berkley children

Edgar L. & Rheta A. Berkley Child and Family Development Center

The University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC) Edgar L. and Rheta A. Berkley Child and Family Development Center (CFDC) was established in 1993. UMKC’s School of Education and an interdisciplinary team of experts worked together to develop a state-of-the-art early childhood school. Berkley is part of UMKC’s School of Education and serves as a learning laboratory for early childhood students. As a resource to others, Berkley enrolls children of UMKC employees, students, and the community. Building an equal relationship between family, child, and teacher is a cornerstone of our philosophy.
