Letter from the Director

Welcome to the Loyola Marymount University Children's Center (LMUCC) website. LMUCC is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high quality care for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age. Recently, LMUCC achieved accreditation for the third time from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), an honor bestowed upon less than 8% of child care centers nationwide.

LMUCC exists to support the University's mission by caring for the children of its faculty, staff, students and community and furthering the University's mission of social justice. It is our belief that our society can achieve its optimal potential when we ensure educational equality for all, beginning at infancy. The core tenet of LMUCC and its success lies in relationships. We believe that positive, caring relationships between a child and the significant adults in his or her life are vital to quality care.

It is my hope that this website captures, in pictures and words, the magic that is LMUCC. Here, you will find an overview of LMUCC, its philosophy, programs, and curriculum. You will also find information about our talented staff and examples of our child and family-focused events.

We hope this information gives you a better picture of all that LMUCC has to offer. To learn more about LMUCC, please contact the Center at 310.258.8900 or email us.

Thank you very much for your interest in LMUCC.
