On-campus Child Development Center accepting applications

Balancing college with work, relationships,friends and family requires multitasking, and throwing kids into the mix can provide a new set of challenges. But putting kids first doesn’t necessarily mean putting dreams of a degree last, thanks to City College’s on-campus preschool.

Sacramento City College’s Child Development Center is accepting applications for openings at the preschool for part-time child care. The Center boasts a hands-on education that not only benefits the student, but their child’s education, according to Child Development Center  Supervisor Lisa Garcia.

Garcia says their caregivers are composed of educators with decades of experience working side-by-side with students completing their early childhood education degrees.

One parent, Shannon Carlsen, said the teachers let her daughter be herself.

“This week [my daughter] decided her name is Soccer,” Carlsen said. “The teachers helped to make her a new name tag with the new name, and they have been so great at remembering to call her ‘Soccer.’”

“I see a lot of parents successfully graduate,” said Garcia. “The majority of our parents here have finished their programs.”

It’s not all cupcakes and crayons, though; the program for toddlers age 3 and under lost funding several years ago, and has not been reinstated, according to Garcia.

“It seems like if they offer any program it should be for younger children,” said student Jordan Austin, holding his months-old son in the campus quad. “I would have signed him up if I could.”

Students can apply online through the Early Childhood Education’s website to enroll children ages 3 to 5 in the part-time preschool, which is open from 8:30 a.m.–noon, and 1 p.m.– 4 p.m. To be eligible, the student must meet requirements based on income and need. Some choose to pay for the non-subsidized fee to get their kids a great education, Garcia said.

“First and foremost is considering the needs of the children,” Garcia said. “You won’t hear a yelling voice here.”
