About Us

Williamsburg Campus Child Care (WCCC) is an independent 501(c)(3) organization, providing day care and early childhood education to Williamsburg families. WCCC has been housed in the Sarah Ives Gore Child Care Center on the campus of the College of William & Mary since 1981. Through fostering and maintaining continuing relationships with the College of William & Mary, the child care program is enriched by the intellectual, creative and physical resources of the College.

WCCC is open to all children regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, or disability.

Academic programs, such as Education and Psychology, regularly participate in the activities of the Center and student interns and employees work closely with the full-time teachers to gain valuable experience in early childhood education and maintain a low student to teacher ratio.

Our approach to childcare emphasizes the need for parents to be active participants in our program. Parents are vital to the success of our program, as they assist with many school events, fundraisers, and other Center needs. Each parent is responsible for completing 12 volunteer hours per year and participate regularly in center activities and operations through a wide range of opportunities.

As a part of our program, lunch and two snacks are carefully planned and prepared fresh on site by William & Mary Dining Services. For early arrivals, breakfast is available until 7:30 am daily.

The Center has a 4-star rating from the Virginia Star Quality Initiative, and a recent efficiency audit confirmed that the Center provides some of the best care in the area.

WCCC is licensed by the State of Virginia and provides meals and snacks through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Furthermore, WCCC has been designated a “Color Me Healthy Center” through the Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Chlld Care Centers (NAP SACC) pilot project.

I’m so grateful…to have found a place which has supported our family and the unique needs and talents of our three children in all the ways it has, grateful to have become a part of an early childhood learning environment which we respect as much as we do the Center, and grateful for all of the relationships we have built,” Jennifer S.
