The Center's history goes back over fifty years when in 1968, a small daycare was created by a steering committee of members of the Church United and members of the Community Center, who noticed there was a need for childcare in the Westfield area. It started out as a small school located at the Madison Avenue Chapel with just one classroom and 15 children.
At the same time a sliding scale tuition was established and continues to be the main focus of Westfield Day Care Center’s mission. By the early 1970’s WDCC started expanding to the Presbyterian Church on Mountain Avenue and Full Day Kindergarten was added. By 1980 all classes were located in this location. In 1983 an infant-toddler center was also opened on W. Broad Street and was in operation until 2003.
