The Child Development Center is currently at capacity. The center will accept contact information in order to place students on a semester-based waiting list. Please inquire about availability each semester.

Choosing the Right Child Care

When it comes to a child’s development, nothing is more important than quality, loving care. WNC recognized a need for quality child care for its students and the community. That’s why the college founded the Child Development Center, with the resources of the college’s Early Childhood Education program.

Age Appropriate Classes

At the Child Development Center, learning is fun! Infants and toddlers are encouraged in developmental and social skills, while older children experience dance, music, books, science, dramatic play, art and computing. Classes are structured around groups of children who have reached the same age and developmental accomplishments. Parents find the center to be a resource they can turn to for insight into their child’s development and behavior.

Age Appropriate Playgrounds

The Child Development Center has two separate playgrounds, one for infants and toddlers and one for preschool children. This assures that children are playing with those of similar physical skills.

Parent Action Board

The center’s programs are strengthened by active parent involvement. The Parent Action Board offers input regarding daily curriculum, enrollment, fund raising and community involvement.

In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability.
