WCCC is a licensed, non-profit, non-denominational facility serving children ages six weeks to 5 years of age.  We are located in the heart of Charlottesville, VA, near the University of Virginia grounds.  Please call or email our Enrollment Coordinator for a tour of our center.

Westminster Child Care Center is a 3 star rated program in the Virginia Star Quality Initiative by showing commitment to quality improvement. We have been a part of this wonderful program since 2008. We received our 3 star rating by the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation in March 2015.  This rating is valid through March 2017.

Hours of Operation

We are open Monday through Friday 7:30AM until 5:30PM. We are open year round, except for designated holidays, staff workdays, and a winter break at the end of December through the beginning of January.  A yearly calendar is handed out in the beginning of every year.  Please note that we follow Charlottesville City Schools for ALL inclement weather closing.


 Westminster Child Care Center (WCCC) was established in 1972, as a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, governed by a Board of Directors composed of parent, community and staff members.  Although housed in Westminster Presbyterian Church, we are not affiliated with any religious denomination.   


 Our mission is to provide a diverse population of families with affordable, high quality child care.  We promote socio-economic, racial, and cultural diversity by including families of various income levels.  To help meet our mission, we have a sliding fee scale that is based on household income. 

As part of our mission, we strive to maintain diversity in race, family income, national origin, gender, and cultural backgrounds among the children and among our staff.

WCCC News:



When: Thursday September 3rd from 5-6

Where: Your child’s new classroom

This year we will hold an informal open house/back to school night for all families.

The open house will replace the more formal classroom orientations.

This is a great time to meet and greet with teachers & office staff, and orient yourself with new classroom schedules and program. New classroom information will be available.

 Children are welcome; it is a great opportunity for them show off their classrooms to their families.

Small snacks and beverages provided
