Fostering Creativity, Confidence, and Independence

Welcome to the Dr. Marvene Lobato Child Care Center (DMLCCC) website! Located in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, we proudly serve the families of the Fowler Elementary School District.

Learning and fun go hand in hand in our developmental preschool and Head Start classrooms. Here, children actively engage in play-based learning experiences that foster creativity, confidence, and independence.

We invite you to visit the pages on this website to learn more about us.

A Message from Our Directors

Welcome, Families!

Our Preschool Pandas are learning and growing, and we’re excited to welcome you into our family.

We’ve designed our programs at DMLCCC to meet the unique needs of each child in a language-rich, multicultural setting as they prepare for a successful transition to kindergarten. Through problem-solving and child-initiated activities, our teachers develop thoughtful lessons based on Arizona’s early learning standards and best practices for special-needs students.

Parental involvement and strong communication between school and home is our priority, so please don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions or concerns.

Learning together,

Kristi Stewart
