Brevard Community College operates five child development centers at four campus locations that provide quality educational preschool programs to children ages 15 months to 5 years old, based on space availability. All of the centers are open to children of current BCC students, alumni, faculty and staff, plus the Melbourne Montessori School also accepts children from the general community. We provide state-funded Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) at all centers, and a state certified Kindergarten at the Montessori School. All of our programs receive high VPK scores.
The primary goal of our centers is to provide a safe, respectful and enriching environment in which children can develop to their highest potential. Our program focuses on the uniqueness of each child and the development of the whole child, using the theories and techniques of child psychologists Jean Piaget and Erik Erikson. Qualified and degreed BCC teaching staff structure the learning environment to initiate creativity and social skills in a loving atmosphere.
We encourage parent involvement through our parent advisory committee, volunteering, fundraising and planning special events for children and families. BCC students are also involved as part of the College’s educational program, so they can receive practical hands-on learning and teaching experiences.
Pay child care fees through our secure VeriSign site with your student/parent BCC ID# and a debit or credit card.
BCC is proud to be part of the Early Learning Coalition of Brevard County, the school-readiness coalition that coordinates local Voluntary Preschool Programs and subsidized child care.Learn More
