The Odessa College Children's Center provides daytime care for approximately 90 children throughout the year. The facility is open to children of students, OC faculty and staff, and children from the community.
The Children's Center accepts children from six weeks to pre-kindergarten. It is open year-round from 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM Monday through Friday, except during regular college holidays.
We accept school-age children (kindergarten to 10 years) during the summer months on a first-come, first-serve basis. Contact us for prices and start date.
While providing a child care service to the community, the Children's Center also serves as a learning laboratory for students in the Odessa College Child Development, Child Psychology, and Lifespan programs.
