The Child Development Center Region 2 announced Tuesday that they received a $150,000 grant from the Daniels Fund. Sandi O'Dell, Executive Director of CDC Region 2, says that they will use the grant to purchase the property across the street from their pre-school on Sheridan Avenue in order to create a safer traffic flow in the area.
Up to 130 children per week visit the pre-school building, causing traffic to become congested at times, O'Dell said. The grant will also allow CDC future expansion of the Sheridan Avenue building, for which specific plans have not yet been made.
CDC is a non-profit educational organization that serves children from birth to five-years-old in both Sheridan and Johnson Counties.
