Mission & Program

New College Child Center seeks to provide geographically and financially accessible daycare, preschool, kindergarten and after-hours care of the highest quality for children ages 1-6, both for members of the New College of Florida community as well as for families throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties.


By using the latest research combined with pedagogy that has stood the test of time, we seek to address the cognitive, creative, emotional and social needs which are unique to all children.


The New College Child Center is a resource for the New College community and was designed to take full advantage of New College of Florida’s educational and arts and science-centered campus to nurture curiosity and discovery in arts, science, language, and cultures while fostering independence, confidence, and peer interaction. The Center strengthens our sense of community through its commitment to raising strong, competent, and creative children, and also through community outreach.
