MARY T. WELLCOME
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Our community-based early childhood education center provides comprehensive high-quality services to children ages 16 months to five years old.

In three developmentally appropriate classrooms, we provide learning to foster cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. Our low staff-to-child ratio allows teachers to get to know the students and their families and partner in each child’s development. This program is made accessible to the community through low-cost tuition, scholarships, and assistance.
