Community Engagement

A positive impact in our community is central to the mission of Cape Fear Community College. It is our delight to offer resources that support and entertain the members of New Hanover and Pender counties.

Child Development Center

The Bonnie Sanders Burney Child Development Center is an on-campus facility that is used for the care of young children and the training of quality early childhood education professionals. The center accepts infants from 6 weeks to children up to 60 months.  The primary goal of this center is to provide an environment that fosters the growth of the whole child in all areas of development including social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative with the ultimate result that children reach their maximum potential.
