Providing Early Childhood Academic Excellence Since 1972!

Our mission is to provide a diverse population of families with affordable high quality child care and early childhood education. We promote socio-economic, racial, and cultural diversity by serving families of various backgrounds. To achieve our mission, we recruit and retain a diverse and caring staff that are highly qualified and fairly compensated; we maintain a multi-tier sliding scale tuition based on family income; and we administer a scholarship program that is funded through donations.
In response to the need for affordable, high quality child care in Charlottesville, a group of women from the Westminster Presbyterian Church began Westminster Child Care Center (WCCC). WCCC was established in 1972 as a private, non-profit 501c(3) child development center governed by a Board of Directors composed of parent, community and staff members. Although housed in Westminster Presbyterian Church (WPC), we are not affiliated with any religious denomination.
While our classrooms and clothing styles have definitely changed over the past 45 years, our mission and values remain the same today. We are intentional about creating a diverse center that universally embraces our unique individual qualities. We find beauty in the world around us. We value the relationships we form with members of our local community. We understand the importance of investing in our youngest generation and do so with abundant love. We are passionate about making WCCC a high quality preschool where children of all backgrounds can happily learn and grown together!
Here are some of the many intentional pieces put in place that make Westminster Child Care Center great:
