Welcome to Wilma Valentine Childcare

Wilma Valentine Childcare in Sidney, Ohio is a non-profit childcare center for ALL children enrolled in preschool and ages 3, 4,and 5. The center provides opportunity 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 is open year-round from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM 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. We have the ability to work with children on skills that many of the other larger childcare centers don’t have time or the staff to address.


WVC is located on the campus site of the Shelby County Board of Developmental Disabilities in the building across the drive from Shelby Hills Early Childhood Center in Sidney, Ohio. All children in the childcare center will attend a preschool class outside of the childcare either at Shelby Hills Early Childhood or the new Sidney City Schools preschool at Whittier Early Childhood Center. We are in constant communication with the preschool programs to ensure a consistent program for children who are enrolled and experience a physical, cognitive, or behavioral challenge. Children enrolled at Shelby Hills Early Childhood will be walked across the drive to the preschool program. Children enrolled at Whittier Early Childhood Center will be transported on a Sidney City School bus, equipped with a five point harness system to the preschool program.
