Pasadena Day Nursery for Child Development (PDN), was founded in 1910 to care for the children of working families in Pasadena and nearby communities. In the 100 years since it was founded, PDN has grown to provide services for families in need of care for children ranging from birth to five years of age.

Quality care at Pasadena Day Nursery for Child Development can only exist through the teachers who care for the children and families in each program.
