Driscoll Children's Hospital offers the Children's Learning Center—an on-site, high-quality childcare center for the children of our employees.
Driscoll Children's Learning Center strives to partner with families in the joys and challenges of parenting, providing a reliable and nurturing program for infants through preschool-aged children. As a team, we support the growth and development of children socially, emotionally and physically—all while fostering their love of learning.
Hours of Operation
The hours of operation for the center are Monday through Friday, 5:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., offering the kind of flexibility needed for rotating schedules.
Driscoll Children's Learning Center has achieved national accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
The NAEYC accreditation is the gold standard for childcare centers. In fact, only 7 percent of childcare centers achieve this honor nationwide. Additionally, our center is only the second in Corpus Christi to obtain this accreditation.
If you are looking for a quality child development program in Texas, you can search the database of programs and see inspection reports of licensed childcare centers and day homes on the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services website.
Some kind words from families using the program:
"I love that when I walk in, I feel the warmth from all the staff. The center doesn't just take care of my child, they also take the time to teach them new things. I appreciate the Learning Center for everything they do because they do it with LOVE, COMPASSION and PATIENCE."
"Every morning when we drop off our sons, whom we love more than anything in the world, we feel comfortable and happy to be leaving them in YOUR hands. YOUR dedication to our children's well-being is INVALUABLE. We know that these early years are critical for development, and we thank each one of you for your hard work and genuine interest in our children. We thank you for giving them so many opportunities to be creative and express themselves, and for the wonderful hands-on learning opportunities they experience daily. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for ALL you do—WE APPRECIATE YOU EVERY DAY!"

"Our children have both really enjoyed coming to the Learning Center and we have been extremely impressed with your nurturing and educational program. All of your staff have been great, making the transition much easier for all of us. The only problem: our kids like it so much that they want to go more!"
