Our Vision

Through a quality program, the WNC Child Development Center (CDC) will provide nurturing and developmentally appropriate care for children and families.

Our Mission

WNC Child Development Center strives to provide developmentally appropriate quality care for the whole child. We focus on the creative, emotional, intellectual, physical, and social growth of each distinct child. We are committed to providing a warm and welcoming Child Development Center for children and families. The Child Development Center is a place where families come to find support, individualized care, and tools for success.



The Child Development Center at WNC has received Four Star Recognition from the Nevada Silver State Starts Quality Rating and Improvement System. A Four Star program is described as a Quality Plus program that exceeds high quality standards. For more information, please visit

playgroundAge Appropriate Classes & Playgrounds

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 so on. 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 childs development and behavior.

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.

The Child Development Center will be adjusting policies and procedure due to COVID-19 precautions.
