Cox Child Care Centers

The Cox Child Care Centers accept children from six weeks old through 12 years of age. Any child of a Cox employee or Cox student is eligible for enrollment. In the event that there are no immediate vacancies a waiting list will be maintained.

No child will be denied care on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or gender. Children with special needs are considered on an individual basis. We accept children with special needs as long as we are assured we can fully meet their needs and they are able to participate without risk to themselves or others.

Our Mission

At Cox Child Care Centers we strive for excellence of care. We want our children to feel happy, loved and secure. It is important to develop class management skills in order to provide an atmosphere that is attractive and safe with qualified supervision as well as a stimulating environment to enhance the child’s growth and development.

As children grow and develop, we make every effort to promote self-esteem and independence in each child and to help in the emotional, physical, intellectual and social aspects of their personality. We want to make learning as fun and creative as possible and to do so we organize our classrooms into learning centers, giving children a variety of activities to choose from each day.

Hours of Operation

The Cox Child Care Center North is open from 5:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday –Friday
