Wonderful Place for Learning

BCDC is not just a daycare center; we’re an environment where even the tiniest learners are free to explore, grow and make friends. We inspire learning in several ways, but here are just four of them:

Full Day Program
High Teacher : Child Ratios
Fun and Varied Curriculum

What Parents Are Saying

My husband and I are first-time parents, so we’ve needed a lot of support with learning what is and isn’t developmentally appropriate for our little girl. As members of the BCDC community, we not only receive parenting support from the staff, but we have also bonded with other parents. We learn and share tips and techniques with them all the time. We feel incredibly lucky to be in such a loving and caring community.
