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.

Our philosophy is learning through play as we offer a stimulating environment for children. Established educators coupled with family involvement and instructional variety create a stable yet dynamic community.

Eleven staff members have served WCCC for more than five years, and the longest serving teacher has been employed at WCCC since 1992.


The center staff members are actively engaged with the children, providing support and appropriate guidance. The low staff-to-child ratios allow our teachers to regularly interact with every child in the classroom on an individual basis. The professional staff are assisted by William and Mary Education and Psychology student interns, student employees, volunteer aides and parents.
