Hours of Operation
The Mentor Graphics Child Development Center is open Monday-Friday 7:30-6:00. We offer full day, year round care and education for children birth to five-years-old. Full time (5 days a week) and part time (TUTH or MWF) enrollment schedules are available.
The Mentor Graphics Child Development Center has 7 classrooms and 2 studio spaces with the capacity to serve up to 100 children and their families per day. Careful attention to the development needs of each age group is reflected in the organization of classroom suites by age specific or mixed aged groupings. This allows families to consider two different styles of classroom placements to support the individual needs and learning styles of their child.
