CCUSD Office of Child Development Home

Welcome

The Office of Child Development offers the highest level of safe and educational learning environments for children from preschool to fifth grade. Unlike other learning centers, the Office of Child Development is staffed by credentialed educators who use a multitude of instructional strategies to respond to students’ diverse needs. These educators also know that having fun can be one of the best educational tools, so they strive to create learning opportunities that are both enjoyable and informative.
 
What sets us apart is the ability to offer parents a learning environment for their child that is staffed by teachers who retain credentials from the Child Development division of the California Department of Education. This credential authorizes the teaching of young children, but more importantly it ensures superlative support services during this critical stage in a child’s life. Accompanied by aides, these trained and experienced educators are skilled in the art of engaging and facilitating students with varied learning styles. Furthermore, all educators are required to participate in a continuous program of professional and academic advancement, including, but not limited to, in-services, college courses, and active involvement in state and national organizations.
 
In addition, the Office of Child Development offers:
- Competitive Prices (including care provided on a sliding scale)
- Classroom Facilities on each CCUSD Elementary School Campus
- Top Scores on Coordinated Compliance Review of Safety and Programming

New Applications for School Age programs

We will begin accepting waiting list applications for the 21-22 school year on Monday, April 5th. At this time, we do not have summer camp information available. Currently, we are full. Once our ratios increase and we are able to add more students, priority will go to our returning families from 2019-2020, then 20-21 applications, then 21-22 applications. We are actively looking to hire more staff and open more classes. Other options to look into for summer camp and childcare would be Culver City Parks and Recreation or the YMCA.

Before and Aftercare program

Before and Aftercare: Currently, we are full at most sites and all current students have re-enrolled for the next school year. If/when the ratios should increase, we will offer spaces to our previous enrolled families from 2019-2020 school year. Then, we will offer spaces to the families on the 2020-21 waiting list. We are not accepting new waitlist applications at this time.
