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.
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 Subsidized Program: Infant, Toddler & Preschool
We provide early education and care for children 3 months through preschool. Eligibility for subsidized child care is determined on the basis of a family’s need (gross monthly income and family size) and students enrolled in daytime classes are given first priority. Fees for subsidized child care are based on a sliding scale. The source of funding for this program is the State Department of Education, Child Development Division, and the Federal and State Child Nutrition Program. Admission to the center is open to all children regardless of race, creed, sex, color, or religious affiliation. The program refrains from religious instruction or worship. There is a waitlist for services based on family income and need. Parents/ Guardians need to be going to school, working, or looking for work.
