About Berkley

The Edgar L. and Rheta A. Berkley Child and Family Development Center is named in honor of our major benefactor Rheta Aaron Sosland. Rheta was a leading figure and advocate of education and the arts in Kansas City for nearly three-quarters of a century. Rheta took great pride in her funding of our program and was able to visit often before her passing in  November of 2003.
