Child Development Center

The Child Development Center offers a stimulating learning environment for the children of KCC students, staff and community members.   

The center also serves as a lab school for KCC courses, Youth Program Services students and high school students participating in a learning practicum. Several students are employed each semester at the center to serve as teacher's aides.
