Centers and institutes

Child Development Center

The Child Development Center offers full-day care and developmentally-appropriate education for the families of VCU faculty, staff and students.

Far more than just a daycare, the center's unique relationship with the School of Education benefits both sides. For instance, the center provides the school with unique opportunities for its early-education students, while benefiting from the expertise of its faculty's research.

One of just 12 centers in Richmond to hold a National Association for the Education of Young Children accreditation, the Child Development Center is committed to a safe, nurturing environment for its children, and prides itself on maintaining a close relationship with its families and communities.

Child Development Center mission

Our mission is to provide high quality, developmentally appropriate care and education for the children of faculty, staff, and students as well as to serve as a model and resource to families, students, and the community.
