Child Development Center

The Margaret H. Rollins Child Development Center provides children with speech and language delays a language-rich environment alongside their typically developing peers, where they all learn skills necessary for success in kindergarten and elementary school.


Youth Development Program

Our Youth Development Program helps children, youth, families, and communities build safe, supportive environments and long-term relationships that provide the opportunities, resources, and confidence to develop their natural skills and talents.


Greater Good Catering

Our social enterprise Greater Good Events provides opportunities for CBH to engage with families and communities who are celebrating important events while providing much-needed financial support for our programs for children.


Support Our Work in Milton

Children’s Beach House has been investing our time, staff, and resources in developing high-quality after-school programming for 110 children at Milton Elementary School.

The research is clear: Children who participate show better-than-average outcomes around school attendance and engagement, social and behavioral issues, and academic performance.

No gift is too small to make a difference. We are grateful for your support as we commit to another year of partnership in Milton.

At first, we had no idea what an impact donating to the beach house would have on us. However, as time passes, it feels like being part of an amazing family that just keeps growing and getting better in service to the community.

The teachers and staff are amazing, experienced, and loving with the children. They are always finding fun and exciting activities for them to do. The teachers have also been so helpful with her speech delay. The additional support has tremendously improved her articulation and phonological development.  I couldn’t ask for a better experience.

The Dunne Family

Children’s Beach House has provided a wonderful introduction to school for our son. He has benefited immensely from the friendships and learning environment there. The school goes above and beyond to provide enjoyable experiences for their students…


The teachers know how to make learning fun and make the material stick. My daughter’s letter and number recognition has drastically improved since she began attending the CBH.


They have taught my son so much. Even on weekends, my son wakes up asking if he has school that day. They are extremely patient and understanding of every child’s needs and have always been available to discuss all concerns or questions. I am so fortunate to have found this amazing Childcare center/pre-school for my son…


What a warm, friendly environment to surround her with daily! All the staff is positive and professional. The communication is timely and proactive. Above all else, the progress and development that I see Mackenzie make including speech improvements b/c of onsite specialists, social/emotional learning, and the leadership, she’s blossoming into a confident, respectful and delightful preschooler.


The teachers are amazing and very easy to communicate with. The kids get a lot of outside time and during the summer they even get to swim in the water and play in the sand! We never have to worry, during the day when they are there, as we know they are being well cared for.


My daughter loves attending the M.H. Rollins Child Development Center! They’re so welcoming to her energetic and active personality. She loves that she gets outside everyday and the curriculum they use makes her think she’s playing all day.



The work of Children’s Beach House would not be possible without the support of our donors. Every day, their kindness and generosity are felt by children and families across the state of Delaware.  Every day, their donations help to make lasting change in children’s lives. We hope you will join them in supporting our work.

Have you ever had your teen misread a social situation? Sometimes what looks like thoughtlessness is social confusion. It's something youth need to learn and apply for their futures and that is what we mean by the term social-emotional learning (SEL), and it's exactly the kind of learning we prioritize at camp. This weekend was all about social awareness how to read social cues and recognize the impact of their reactions to those cues.The rest of the weekend was full of adventure, relationship building, and what the teens hope to learn in the future. With an impromptu excursion to @CapeHenlopenStatePark and a trip to Dairy Queen. As well as a Trip to @ClearSpaceTheatre to see "A Raisin in the Sun". Campers also took beach walks, played sports, played board games, and cooked King Cakes with our incredible Chef Paula. We spent time reflecting on the weekend and the future weekends and summer weeks. The teens told me they would love to learn more about life skills such as job skills, financial skills, writing a resume, interviewing for jobs, and independent living skills.-Joshua Scott, Camp Coordinator#ChildrensBeachHouse #YouthDevelopmentProgram ...
