The TRI Child Development Center is getting a new look. 

This summer, staff members from the Child Development Center and the Center on Early Learning pitched in to remove old furniture (some of which had been in service for decades) and clear the space for repainting.

The new furniture and classroom materials were provided by additional funding from Preschool Promise. Western Oregon University's Facilities Services provided the painting, which will update and upgrade the center to include the university’s colors.

Many thanks to all the staff who helped out, as well as to Preschool Promise and Facilities Services!


What a wonderful gift for the center! Long past due! :) Congratulations!
