Welcome to the Child Development Center
The Napa Valley College Child Development Center is an integral part of the campus community. The Child Development Center can serve 125 children ranging from 2 months to 5 years 7 months or kindergarten entry. The center serves as a Lab School for college students pursuing careers in Child and Family Studies and Health Occupations.
We offer the following two programs to serve students, staff, and the community:
State Programs: Infant, Toddler and Preschool
The source of funding for this program is the State Department of Education, Child Development Division, and the Federal and State Child Nutrition Program. Eligibility for subsidized child care is determined on the basis of a family’s need (student or employment status) and their gross monthly income in relation to family size. Fees for subsidized child care are based on a sliding scale. There is a waitlist for services, families are contacted as space becomes available.
Hours of Operation:
7:45 a.m-3:15 p.m Monday-Thursday
7:45 a.m-2:15 p.m Friday
Community Preschool (2.5 years-5.7 years)
Student-parents who do not qualify for subsidized child care, as well as Napa Valley College staff, faculty, and community members may enroll and pay a full tuition fee.
Community Preschool Hours of Operation:
NVC Child Development Center's primary goal is to provide a developmentally safe and nurturing environment which promotes the social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development of young children while responding to the needs of their families.
