The Child Development Center at Bakersfield College (CDC) offers a student service with the primary goal of providing a comprehensive child development program that serves student families and their children. Our role is to provide the time and support to assist student families in achieving their chosen academic/career goals. The CDC demonstration laboratory classrooms offer a model of best practices in early childhood education while providing students learning opportunities through observation and on-floor interactions with young children and their families.
The centers are licensed through the California Department of Social Services. All teachers are professionally trained in the field of early childhood education, and are certificated through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
Placement in the program is made according to state priorities and date of application. The program is designed for income eligible families who are enrolled in college courses leading to a specific career/professional goal.
