The National Black Child Development Institute, Inc. (NBCDI) founded in 1970, exists to improve and protect the quality of life of African American children and families.  NBCDI carries out its mission through a national affiliate network, public education projects and by providing leadership training in the areas of early care and education, elementary and secondary education, child welfare, parenting and health.  The institute is dedicated to linking prevention and intervention programs and resources to the African American community.  BCDI  Philadelphia & Vicinity Affiliate supports and is currently working on focus areas of NBCDI

EARLY CARE AND LEARNING
BCDI  Philadelphia & Vicinity Affiliate believes that the availability of developmental early learning experiences promotes and strengthens the well-being of children and their families.  Such programs seek to look at the total needs of the child and family.  In doing so, they:  Recognize stages of growth and development in children; Provide stimulating experiences designed to facilitate cognitive, social, physical, cultural and emotional development; Attend to the health and nutritional needs of children; Promote nurturing and supportive emotional responses to children; and Provide culturally appropriate curriculum and practices.
