• Approximately one half of the spaces are subsidized by the California Department of Education for low income student families. These families pay fees determined by the CDE based on monthly income and family size.

• Student parents who are not subsidized by the CDE still pay less than the full cost of care due to the Associated Student support of the child care program.

• Faculty and staff pay market rates for the area.

• Part time or full time care is available.

• For fee information, contact the center office at (408) 924-6988.


Student assistants are employed as teacher aides. Priority is given to students who have some units in child development or early childhood education or child psychology.
