Welcome to the Montclair Child Development Center, Inc. (MCDC), where we embrace the child, empower the family and strengthen the community! Since 1968, we have helped thousands of children enter school ready to achieve academic success and assist families on the road to self-sufficiency.  MCDC receives federal, state, and private funding, which supports our delivery of comprehensive, inclusive services to children birth to five years of age living in Belleville, Bloomfield, Montclair, Orange, and West Orange, New Jersey. Our entire team is committed to providing a safe, nurturing learning environment designed to address the child’s nutritional and health needs while stimulating rapid growth in physical coordination, self-esteem, early literacy skills, math, and science.

We invite you to check out the pages on our website to learn more about our services.
