Manchester Family Child Development Center

The primary goal of the Manchester Family Child Development Center (MFCDC) is to offer a safe and enriching environment in which children can grow and learn. It offers a rich, stimulating, family friendly setting that is welcoming 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. Each class of 12-14 mixed-age children is led by two full time teachers and student support staff.

The center operates from 7:15 a.m.-5:45 p.m., Monday-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 visit MFCDC.
