Our Programs

We offer care for children 6 weeks through 12 years old. We have 11 classrooms in our center, a large outdoor space with 4 playgrounds, and an indoor gross motor room to use on bad weather days. We also have a 4K program at our center through the Mukwonago Area School District. We have many teachers who have been in early childhood for 20+ years, and teachers who are new to early childhood who are eager to learn and bring in fresh ideas. Together we create wonderful experiences for children of all ages!

"Where adventures start, friendships begin, and messes are made." 

Welcome to Vernon Child Development Center! Established in Big Bend, Wisconsin in 1978, the Vernon Child Development Center is committed to positively impacting families in our community by providing safe, nurturing, trusted care for all children. The Center is Christian-based and started as a mission of the First United Presbyterian Church of Vernon. You do not need to be a church member to attend our center, and while we promote strong Christian values, there is no religious curriculum or formal religious teachings. 

We promote the feeling of your families "home away from home", and we want want every child in our care to develop a sense of worth and self-esteem. We are committed to providing child care programs where children develop to their fullest potential through play and learning activities. We realize each child differs in rate of development and past experiences. We recognize and celebrate these differences, and help children grow and develop at their own time.
