The Buffalo Child Development Center gave a year-end report to the Johnson County Commissioners, outlining what the center does and plans they have for the coming year.

Marsha Riley, who is the new Executive Director since taking the position in May of 2016, explained what the child development center does.

According to Riley, their mission is to support and strengthen children, families and professionals in the community by working to provide developmental information and services.

She said the center will be applying to the county this year for one-percent funds to upgrade their hearing screening equipment.

Riley explained that due to licensing requirements in the county, the center has one preschool class of 12 students and two instructors, but have room in the facility to add another class.

During the last year, the center served 183 kids in the county, including Kaycee, which is consistent from year to year, although Riley reported a high in recent years of around 200 kids served.

The center is funded through a contract with the Department of Health's Behavioral Health Division.
