Child Development Center

Manchester Family Child Development Center

The primary goal of the Manchester Family Child Development Center is to offer a safe and enriching environment in which children can grow and learn. It offers a rich, stimulating setting that is warm and supportive of each child’s individual learning pace.

Affiliated with USD’s School of Leadership and Education Sciences, the center serves as a practicum and research site for members of the university community. The center accepts all children between the ages of 2-1/2 and 5 years, with the availability of both full- and part-time enrollment options. Each class of 12-14 mixed-age children is staffed by two full time teachers.

The Center operates from 7:15 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, 48 weeks per year. Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to inquire. For additional information, including current tuition rates, please contact the center at (619) 260-4620 or go to MFCDC.
