  • When Can I Begin to Apply for Enrollment Into the Center?

    The waitlist application period for children will be a two-week period each semester: The fall waitlist application period is in April and for spring it is in November. Please call the child development center for specific application start dates for each semester during these particular months. Applications will be accepted beyond that time if spaces are still available. Requests to enroll will be accepted ( in order of priority and date registered) according to space available for each age group, family needs (documented training verification and employment for all adults counted in family size) and class schedule. Contact the campus center for additional details.

    Your chances of being accepted into the Child Development Center are always better if you apply early during the first priority waitlist application period. However, waitlist applications will still be accepted up until the second week of the each semester.
    During these waitlist application periods, all applicants are "prioritized" according to the state guidelines listed below and are put on a PRIORITY WAITING LIST. Then, as vacancies occur, applicants will be contacted in order of priority on the waiting list.
    Everyone on the priority waiting list will be admitted according to the enrollment priorities and space availability.

    Child Development Center Enrollment Priorities

    First Priority: Is given to families whose children are receiving child protective services or families whose children are at risk of being neglected, abused, or exploited.

    Second Priority: Enrollment includes those families that do not fall into the first priority group that was discussed above. Families falling into the second priority group are admitted based on their monthly gross family income and family size. All CSPP eligible four-year-old children shall be admitted before CSPP eligible three-year-olds in accordance with family income ranking, with the lowest income ranks being admitted first. When two or more families have the same income, the family that has a child with exceptional needs shall be admitted first. If none of the families with the same income ranking has an exceptional needs child, the family that has been on the waiting list the longest shall be admitted first.

    Wait List: A waitlist will be maintained in accordance with the enrollment priorities above. As vacancies occur, applicants will be contacted in order of priority from the wait list (State of California, Department of Education, Child Development Division, Funding Terms and Conditions for Child Development Programs). The waitlist will be reestablished each semester. Parents should contact the Center during each waitlist application period to re-apply.
