Child Development Center

The Child Development Center (CDC) is a nurturing place for children of WLAC student/parents, staff/faculty and community parents (based on meeting State guidelines). WLAC students receive first priority in enrollment. The CDC is licensed by the Community Care Licensing and receives funding from The California Department of Education Child Development Division. The center provides free and low cost early education services.

The CDC is a safe, positive learning environment for young children ages 1-5 years. The program offers developmentally appropriate curriculum in a play based learning environment. Applications are available online (see above) and in the Counseling Center, EOP&S, the Workforce Development Office and the Child Development Center, which is located south of the flagpole.
