Merced College Child Development
"We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet
we forget that he is someone today."
The Merced College Child Development Center is designed
to provide an environment which encourages the positive growth and
development of each child, family, student and staff member. The
educational philosophy of all programs associated with the Center is based
on the belief that the years of early childhood are the most crucial and all
individuals have the right to develop to their fullest potential.
