Santa Rosa Junior College Children’s Center operates a developmentally appropriate program for the children of students, staff, and faculty. The center also serves as a model demonstration program/lab school for students studying Child Development and as an on-campus teacher training site. The program is funded by the State Department of Education, the Sonoma County Junior College District, and parent fees. Subsidized child care is available to eligible families.
The guidelines for subsidized care are established by the State Department of Education. Fees for these subsidized spots, when applicable, are based on a sliding scale. Nonsubsidized openings are based on a fee scale.
Located in the Call Child Development Center facility on the Santa Rosa Campus, the center serves approximately 100 children ages six months to five years. The program follows the school calendar and is open from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm, Monday–Thursday, and 8:30 am–12:30 pm on Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. The center operates with the school calendar and is closed during the summer.
The program features environments that are child centered, allowing children freedom and independence to choose their play materials. Young children learn through play and exploration. We provide a nurturing and safe environment while respecting diverse family backgrounds and accommodating many different learning styles. Additionally, the center has been designated as a demonstration site for the Program for Infant Toddler Caregivers.
