Providing quality childcare since 1969
Westminster Child Development Center provides quality-based, curriculum-centered programming in a Christian-environment for families of varying socioeconomic levels in the Grand Rapids area.
Our sliding-scale fee ensures all income levels have access to our high-quality care.
WCDC is open to all.
It is not necessary to be a member of our church or our faith to enroll your child in WCDC. We recognize the need to provide a curriculum of learning that fosters the physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth of the children in our care.
We researched several centers and chose WCDC because of the amazing staff. Several of the teachers have been there for over a decade and their love of children is impressive. All of the teachers in the center made our children feel right at home from day one, and our kids both love attending WCDC.
We have been very impressed with the curriculum and enjoy hearing about what the kids learn each day. The teachers provide individualized attention to ensure that our children’s needs are being met, they are very flexible, and the directors are always happy to answer questions that we have.
We have also been impressed with the center’s dedication to providing high quality care to low-income families in our area. WCDC has been one of the best things about our move to Grand Rapids!
My daughter is thriving with the love, attention, and education that the teachers at WCDC have provided. The teachers are incredibly nurturing and attentive to the special needs/basic needs of the children attending their program. I appreciate the opportunity to check in with teachers about how my daughter’s day was. They provide a plethora of learning opportunities, field trips, and fun projects for kids. There are also opportunities for me to get involved with the center and spend time with my child during the day, which is a great opportunity for me to see how my daughter is interacting with her friends and the teachers. I also appreciate the diversity of the center.
All in all, I have appreciated the opportunity to send my child to a place where I am confident that she is being cared for and not worry about her. I would recommend WCDC to any parent looking for an excellent daycare/educational program for their children.
I loved having a place to send my daughter where I knew for a fact that her safety and well-being were a top priority for her teachers. I sent my daughter to WCDC for almost six years and not a day goes by that I don't thank God for their role in her life. She was well prepared for Kindergarten and continues to excel. I look at WCDC as not just a place to ‘watch’ my child, but honestly love her and help her grow. I look forward to the birth of my son as he will also attend WCDC and get the same great experience as my daughter.
WCDC has a variety of volunteer opportunities for many different talents.
