Sharon L. Hostler Child Development Center

Welcome to Our Center

The Sharon L. Hostler Child Development Center serves as a home away from home for many of our loyal UVA families.  Our center consists of ten classrooms, each with a set of creative, supportive teachers that promise to nurture children's growth from Infancy to Pre-K.  Our classrooms are known for their unique environments, their developmentally appropriate weekly lessons, & the health & safety practices implemented daily.  Each of our educators recognize the importance of the early years & promise to provide your family the continuity of care you deserve.  Our team at Sharon L. Hostler is also known for building strong parent partnerships-- we can't wait to build one with you!  We look forward to meeting your family!
