The Hayes Child Development Center at Clover Park Technical College's Lakewood campus provides services for children ages four weeks to five years. We are here to support CPTC students and staff needing child care. We do provide child care for eligible community members, but CPTC students and staff receive a discounted rate and have priority for enrollment. We accept DSHS, NACCRRA and cash payments.

We are proud to be a NAEYC accredited facility that provides a Preschool Head Start program. NAEYC accredited centers are high-quality programs that provide a safe and nurturing environment while promoting the development of young children. NAEYC accredited programs show their quality by meeting the 10 NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards, which are based on the latest research on education and development of young children.
