About

MCC Child Development Center is open from 7:30-5:00 Monday thru Friday.  We are currently licensed for children age 2.10 years thru 12 years and serve children of MCC students, faculty and the community. We are able to accommodate children with part-time and full time schedules.  As of August 2021 we will have 2 multi-age programs (6 weeks - 2.10 years opening August 2021 and 2.10 years - 6year currently running). 

We are located inside Manchester Community College and provide quality practicum placements for those MCC students who are in the Early Childhood and Education programs along with being a field site for additional MCC programs such as psychology, nursing and exercise science.  The children are always under the supervision of our teachers but the classroom might have additional student teachers from the program conducting observations and implementing previously approved lesson plans. 

Our multi-age program provides rich classroom environments where children are encouraged to explore their environment through hands-on activities.  The program is designed to provide a safe, happy learning environment for each child.  The classroom environment is arranged into learning centers where children can explore, experiment and enhance all areas of development.  Ongoing verbal interactions occur between children, teachers and families on a daily basis and written communication exists through posting weekly lesson plans, schedules and weekly individual child notes.  Our daily schedule allows for children to participate in individual, small and large group activities that offer opportunities for quiet and active play.

Multiage Infant/Toddler

(6 weeks-2.10 years): 

Leaving your child in someone else’s hands is a huge step.  Your child is our number one priority.  In our multiage infant/toddler classroom, educated, nurturing teachers are there to foster social emotional skills through nurturing interactions. The program offers a rich environment that meets your child’s individual needs while supporting you and your family.  Daily communication occurs between teachers and families verbally, in a written format and digitally.  Activities that foster around gross motor, social emotional, language, fine motor, math and creativity occur daily and is planned for each individual child.
