Benefits of
Cheers School Family

Our teachers are our best feature. Cheers School Family Schools recruit caring and experienced teachers who are Child Development Associate certified. Our programs are based on the latest research in early child development, and teachers share curriculum and weekly activities with parents and staff.

Family Breakfast

Involved Parents

Parents benefit with special programs, seminars and old-fashioned fun events. These provide opportunities for parents to visit with other parents and get to know our staff.


Children First Child Development Center is a nonprofit organization and an affiliate of Cheers School Family. We are proud to be part of United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley and Eastern Panhandle.

Kid Chefs

Food and Nutrition

Our food program is supported by the USDA's Child and Adult Care Food Program. We have high quality standards to include fresh fruit and vegetable options, grilled meats, whole grains, and milk with every meal. Our rotating menus provide a variety of meal options. Meals are included with tuition. To protect children with life-threatening peanut allergies, all of our programs are nut-free.

Kids with Capes

Safety and Security

We know that in order for a child to succeed in an educational environment, it is necessary for them to feel safe. Safety, both physical and emotional, are key to providing a positive learning environment.


Our facilities are equipped with several safety features including:

State-Licensed Facilities

Key Card Entry System

Visitor Check In

Security Alarms

Child-Safe Fencing

Resilient Play Surfaces

Happy Kids with Books

The Scholarship Fund

We are proud to offer financial assistance to families in our community. We support state-subsidized children through Clarke, Frederick, Winchester City, Shenandoah and Warren Counties in Virginia and through Mountain Heart Services in West Virginia. Please contact the Centers to determine availability for these programs.


For those families who may not qualify  for state-funded assistance, or may be experiencing a short-term financial struggle, the CHEERS Scholarship Fund   is available as a resource to families. Funding varies due to current community donations and fundraiser income.


Your family may qualify for financial assistance. Please return your completed application with all required documents   to your center.
