Welcome to the Orange Education Child Development Center (OEC CDC).

Our program serves children ages 3 to 4 years old and offers two sessions Monday through Friday from 7:45 to 10:45 in the morning and 12:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon.

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.

The staff and I are pleased that you have taken the time to get to know us a little better. We invite you to come visit us. Please call (714) 628-5925 to arrange an appointment.

With Warm Regards,

Mary O’Neill, Director
