Parent Group

President, Lara Hall; Vice President, Stacey Pattie; Treasurer, Lisa Wickersty


The Parent Group was created for parents of children at the UVA Malcolm W. Cole Child Care Center (MCCCC).  The purposes of the group are: 


·         To provide a forum for parents to raise questions, give kudos, and share concerns;

·         To be a liaison to UVA and Bright Horizons management;

·         To show appreciation and support of our teachers and staff through fundraising efforts; and

·         To foster the bonds between MCCCC parents, children, and staff.


Officers are elected annually.  Parent group meetings are held on a quarterly basis in the afternoon at the center in the Multipurpose Room.  Each meeting is led by the President with an agenda circulated at the meeting.  Meeting minutes will be posted on the Parent Group bulletin board and are available upon request.


The 2014-15 Parent Group meetings are scheduled as follows:


Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Tuesday, March 24, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Tuesday, June 23, 2014 at 4:30 pm


The Parent Group is responsible for assisting with the Week of the Young Child and planning and executing the yearly fundraisers such as Fall and Spring pictures, Square 1 Art, Fall and/or Spring Bulbs, Graduation Art Auction and more.  All proceeds from Parent Group fundraisers directly support the MCCCC Staff. 


Your participation in the Parent Group is encouraged and your support of our efforts is greatly appreciated.  If we can offer any additional information or answer questions, do not hesitate to contact the Parent Group officers at
