Cactus Corner Child Development Center hosted a “CYSS Art Show” which was open to the public on Jan. 31.

All CDC teachers were challenged to have their children create works of art to display for the art show. Some of the criteria included three-dimensional art, most creative use of supplies, and best display of children’s art work. Several CYSS management judged the display with Room 143 Full Day Strong Beginnings winning first place, Room 136 Kindergarten coming in second, and Room 116 Infants taking third place. The top three winners earned credit toward their classroom wish lists; first prize was $150; second prize was $100, and; third prize was $75.

The “Cactus Corner” CDC is a 25,000 square foot single story building on an approximately five acres. This facility has a 232 child capacity for children ages 6 weeks through 5 years. The CDC houses 16 classrooms, full administrative areas with staff lounge and training room, a commercial kitchen, outdoor playgrounds and activity areas for infants, toddlers, pre-K and kindergarten aged children.
