Office Location: CDC
Department: Child Development

Lan has been working at Mission College Child Development Center since 2002. She says, “It has been amazing and gratifying to work with such an incredible group of people. I have learned so much from each and every one of them. MCCDC is a developmental play-based program that helps adults understand that what children are thinking and feeling is essential for healthy growth.”

Lan believes that children learn to build trust, confidence and explore in a safe and supportive environment.

Working at MCCDC has taught her so much about diverse groups of children, families and staff. From that she has earned the love and respect of children, parents, Practicum Students, and staff.
