About Us

Rancho Santiago Community College District operates five child development centers and Early Head Start to both serve the needs of students with childcare and train families seeking a career in Human Development.

Children always come first in our centers – before planned curriculum, before rules, and before adult convenience. Our goal is to work with your child’s natural development and to support the emerging self within. We strongly believe that learning is all that happens to the child while she/he is at the center every moment of the day, and that it is generated from all people – staff, parents and other children.

Families can choose between center based or home based care. Fees are based on a sliding scale according to the parents’ income. Contact individual centers for hours of operation and information.
