• Wellmont Child Development Center

    It’s often difficult to find convenient, skilled child care in a safe and nurturing environment – especially for working professionals. We’re proud to offer a state-of-the-art program to meet your child’s needs with extended hours to accommodate your busy lifestyle.

    Where Children Grow

    The Wellmont Child Development Center promotes physical, social, cognitive and emotional development through all stages of a child’s development. Our philosophy is based on developmentally appropriate practices and the belief that children learn through real experiences. This is why our classrooms incorporate creative play, music, art, science, math and much more.

    In 1999, YWCA of Bristol partnered with Wellmont Health System to operate the Wellmont Child Development Center on the campus of Bristol Regional Medical Center. Licensed by the state of Tennessee, our on-site center is designed to serve the children of healthcare workers within Wellmont Health System. Additional openings are available to parents in need of child care within our community.

    If you would like to learn more about Wellmont Child Development Center, we invite you to visit our center and spend some time observing the interaction between our children and staff. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.

    The Wellmont Child Development Center offers many unique features including:

    • Secure facility with video monitoring
    • Extended hours for working parents
    • Curriculum-based pre-K program to prepare children for kindergarten
    • Age-appropriate outdoor play areas
