“… It was completely different than any other Child Care we had seen – clean, calm, organized, inviting … Stepping foot into the WVC facility, we knew it was the place for our daughter.”
- Tiffany and Sean, parents of Leta
Wilma Valentine Child Care in Sidney, Ohio is a non-profit child care center for ALL children ages 3, 4, and 5. The center provides opportunities for children with disabilities and without disabilities to learn together in an integrated setting. All children learn the value of friendship and are taught important life skills. WVC and is open year-round from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and is staffed at a ratio of approximately 1 staff for every 7 children. We can offer more individualized care for children because of our smaller size and consistent staff.
The center is located in the building across the drive from Shelby Hills Early Childhood Center in Sidney, Ohio. All children in the child care center have the opportunity to attend a preschool class as part of their day, as mentor/typical preschoolers or a preschooler with special needs. In addition, the proximity to the preschool provides the opportunity for the child care staff to work closely with the Shelby Hills staff to provide a consistent program for children who are enrolled in both centers and who may be experiencing physical, cognitive, or behavioral challenges.
