CHAFFEY COLLEGE OFFERS PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

Rancho Cucamonga, CA - The Chaffey College Child Development Center will be offering a State Preschool Program to Chaffey College students, staff, faculty and community this fall.

The Preschool Program will complement the Center Based Child Care Services already offered. The Preschool Program is designed for children ages 18 months to 5 years old and the Center Based Child Care Services are for children ages 18 months to 2 1/2 years. Both services are available during the fall and spring semesters, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.

To support the new preschool Program, the Chaffey College Child Development Center will open three new classrooms, two in the morning and one in the afternoon. The curriculum for each class is based on the child's age and developmental stage according to the California Preschool Foundations. The goal of the program is to prepare children for kindergarten.

Enrollment for the Preschool Program is ongoing throughout the semester as space becomes available. Fees are based on a sliding scale by the Department of Education. Qualifying parents may enroll their children at no charge. Fees for children under the age of 3 are $44.00 for part time, and $52.00 for full time per day. Fees for children older than 3 are $32.00 for part time and $44.00 for full time per day.

Enrollment forms are obtainable at the Chaffey College Child Development Center or online at the college website www.chaffey.edu/childctr. Parents seeking state subsidized care need to attach income verification.

For more information, please contact the Chaffey College Child Development Center at 909/652-6875.
