Welcome to the Centennial Education Center Child Development Center (CEC CDC). Our program serves children from 3 to 5 years old and offers three sessions Monday through Friday from 7:45 to 10:45 in the morning, 11:15 to 2:15 in the afternoon and 2:30 to 5:30 for the Twilight Session.
We value and appreciate parent participation as one of the key factors for children’s success in school; therefore, we encourage parents to volunteer in the classroom, participate on our Parent Advisory Committee, and attend our numerous parenting workshops. We welcome parents to become an integral part of all aspects of our English/Spanish bilingual/ bicultural program.
Our facility has a beautiful natural outdoor environment that allows children the opportunity to interact with nature and to enjoy the outdoors.
We invite you to come visit us. Please call (714) 241-5739 to arrange an appointment.

With Warm Regards,
Susan Wahl, Director
