Who we are

Davidson-Cornelius Child Development Center (DCCDC) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Since 1969, we have proudly served Davidson, Cornelius, and surrounding communities by providing high-quality childcare and early education in a safe, healthy, nurturing, and inclusive environment. The original mission of the DCCDC remains true today: to provide high quality, affordable early care, and education for any child of our community and to embrace and foster diversity in a safe learning environment for young children.

Where we are

Located at Exit 30, off I-77 North in Davidson, our center is committed to providing our employees with the opportunity to work at their highest level of ability. Every team member is a valuable asset.

How we are different

DCCDC is a 5-STAR center with smaller class sizes and ratios that create a family dynamic and rewarding work environment. We have an excellent team of educators in place, but we need a few more of the best and the brightest to complete our center family.

After successfully completing a 90-day probationary period, we offer the following benefits:
