The Williamsburg Child Development Center will provide care for up to 172 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years in one building. We will feature larger, more spacious classrooms and will have 3 separate playgrounds to allow all children to play outside safely at the same time. The center will also provide "one stop" drop-off and pick-up for better convenience for parents. The Center will consist of both the Williamsburg Community Child Care Center (W4Cs) and Kid in Need of Daily Care (KIND Care). W4Cs goal is to offer an educational program that will instill, encourage, and further a desire for learning, while providing a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of each child. KIND Care provides a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for children, while expanding their opportunities for education, recreation and social development at an affordable cost during out of school time.
