Child Development Center Now Accepting Preschool Applicantions

Child Development CenterSupported by a one-year $70,000 state grant, Compton Center now has space available in its half-day preschool program for 3- and 4-year-old children at low or no cost for eligible families. Parents are encouraged to visit the Compton Center Child Development Center (CDC), take a tour and fill out eligibility paperwork.

The half-day preschool program is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to noon. Children receive developmentally appropriate curriculum and nutrition.

The Compton Center Child Development Center employs state-certified teachers who provide age-appropriate learning experiences for the preschoolers. 

“HighScope early childhood development curriculum is used at the center,” said Shirley Edwards, director of the CDC. “With active participatory learning, children have opportunities to make decisions and plan what they want to do and then they do it. The students are well cared for and do well academically.”

The CDC is licensed by the California State Department of Social Services as a combination site to serve infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and to provide after-school programs for school-age children. If a family is not eligible for the State Preschool Program outlined above, there may be another program available at the CDC to serve their needs.
