In 1981, the College opened a Child Development Center on the Davidson Campus.The purpose of this facility is to provide developmentally appropriate care and education for pre-school children while serving as a hands-on laboratory site for students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education program and other College programs of study. The center offers students of the College opportunities to learn about child development and the education of young children by observing and interacting with young children under the supervision of qualified teachers and staff. In addition, the center serves as a resource for and collaborative partner with local child care providers and community agencies committed to enhancing the quality of care and education for young children.

The center enrolls children from infancy through five years of age. The Child Development Center earned a 5-star rating in August 2000, the highest rating awarded by the N. C. Division of Child Development, which regulates licensed childcare facilities in the state. Operational hours for the Child Development Center are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
