I am Yvonne Villegas-Aguilera, the MCDC Registrar. Below is some information designed to provide you with information about enrolling in MCDC. If after reading a little about our center, you wish to enroll, please save the MCDC Membership Application Form located at the bottom of the page to your computer so you can fill it out and mail electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MCDC is a parent-run daycare. Day-to-day operations are handled by the Director, Kelli Wright, Asst. Director, Cecilia Finn, and Admin. Assitant, Shelby Smith. Other matters are handled by a board of directors that is staffed by MCDC parents. I am one of those parents and hold the position of Registrar.
MCDC is NAC accredited and uses the Creative Curriculum.
MCDC is on the USDA food program to ensure balanced meals for the children.
Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided. Enfamil Lipil w/ iron and baby rice cereal are also provided for infants. Parents must supply their own bottles, however.
Fees are due every September.

Additional Fees $350 deposit required within the first month of enrollment; credited towards last 2 weeks of enrollment when 2 weeks notice is given.
