Fees are based on a sliding scale according to the family size and gross monthly income. The fees are established by the State Department of Education and the San Diego Community College District.
To complete your initial enrollment application you must provide us with the following pieces of information:
The registration period for children will be a two-week period each semester. Applications will be accepted beyond that time if space is 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 enrollment application period. However, enrollment applications will still be accepted up until the second week of the each semester. During these enrollment 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 are contacted in order of priority on the waiting list.
The priority waiting list will be maintained and we will continue to accept and prioritize enrollment applications up until the second week of the each semester. Everyone on the priority waiting list will be admitted according to the enrollment priorities and space availability.
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 of 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. Lower income families receive priority of admission. In addition, the need for child care must also be established based on class schedule and employment verification.
New children coming into the program will be accepted as spaces become available.
