At Fox Valley Technical College's Parent Child Center, care is provided in an
atmosphere of warmth, security, love, and respect. We believe that each child is
a special, unique individual. We are a nonprofit organization providing quality child care and preschool
programs. The center is state-licensed by the Department of Children and Families.
The center is located at the Appleton campus and is licensed for 120 children, ages 6 weeks through 5 years all year round and 6-11 years old summer only. We provide for the educational, social and physical needs of the children, while also providing a learning experience for college students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education program.
Center hours are 6:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, year-round. However, we do close the week between Christmas and New Year's, as well as the week of July 4.
