Choosing the best childcare and early childhood education program for your family is a very important decision for you.  You want only the best for your child, and you must feel comfortable with the program you choose. Waxhaw Child Development Center was established to give you that comfort. 

Our teachers and administration know the difficulties of balancing the demands of work and family. This is why we invite you to partner with your child's teacher to enhance the learning experience and to make your time away from your child as productive as possible. 

At Waxhaw Child Development Center, children of all ages enjoy many developmentally appropriate experiences that they can build upon. Caregivers encourage secure, warm feelings and foster positive interaction with other children in a caring, safe, challenging yet secure environment. Our center accepts children ages six weeks through fifth grade.

Located in the charming town of Waxhaw, NC, our campus is a home-like environment with spacious classrooms decorated with the children's artwork, and beautiful playgrounds with trees and landscaping.

Although Waxhaw Child Development Center does not hold to a particular denomination, we are a Christian based center.  Christian principles are implemented throughout, daily blessings said at meal/snack time and also incorporated through character building, values and morals during weekly chapel time. 

The center provides a nutritious morning and afternoon snack.

The center is staffed with teachers with college degrees or a continuing educational background in early childhood development. All staff are certified in CPR and basic first aid.

Children with special needs will be assessed on an individual basis with the help of parents, staff and the Union County Center for Human Development.

Our center accepts children regardless of race, color, creed, religion or nationality.

Discipline Policy

We use a positive approach to discipline, with the goal of helping each child develop a good self-image. To do this, we must set limits for the children.  "Time out" / re-direction is used when the child is having difficulty with a particular situation.
