Welcome to ABC Child Development Center of Ocean Springs

My name is Janet Bentzinger and I have been working with children in a preschool setting, or as a nurse, for over 30 years. The passion I have for children has never wavered in all of these years, and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to introduce each prospective parent to our center.

Within the facility’s daily schedule, each child has the opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving, personal interaction skills, and learning concepts through first-hand experience. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self and teacher directed activities.

Opportunities for solitary play as well as group activities are provided. Staff serves as a positive role model and provides care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child’s individual needs. We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing, and we believe parents and teachers are partners in the children’s care and education.
