The Child Development Center has a full-day state preschool program for Children ages 3 to 5 years and a school-age program for children ages 5-11 to attend after school or when they are off track. Priority enrollment for these programs is given to CRC students but others may apply. As a state subsidized program we rank applications on a sliding scale and serve the lowest income families first.
To apply for a space for your child please follow the instructions on the Application Information page. For other childcare needs, visit our Nest Family Resource Center page for information about Childcare for Infants and Young Children.
For more information, contact the center by email at CRC-CDC@crc.losrios.edu.
You may also visit our Facebook page for resources and information.
In addition to preschool and child care services, CRC has a family resource center, The Nest that offers a wide variety of services to student families.
The CDC also supports the Early Childhood Education college students as they prepare for careers in the Early Care and Education field. College students fulfill requirements for their practicum courses by spending time working alongside the CDC teachers as they implement Early Childhood Education principles and practices in the children's classrooms.
The Cosumnes River College Child Development Center is funded through the California Departments of Education and Social Services. We are a state subsidized program.

Frequently Asked Questions
Monday through Friday from 7:15 am to 5:00 pm throughout CRC's fall and spring semesters. We are closed the same days the campus is closed for holidays and winter and spring breaks.
No. However, as a state subsidized program, we do require that you are either enrolled at any learning institution (not just Los Rios schools) or employed. We give priority to CRC Students.
There is no minimum unit requirement, but we do have a minimum of 4 hours a day required. You do not have to be enrolled in classes every day of the week. Part time schedules are available. Your childcare hours can include class time, study time, lab time and work time.
We are funded through the California Department of Education, Child Development Division - a state subsidized program. Therefore, low income families pay no fee and are given priority registration as spots are available. Higher income families pay a fee based on the CDE's sliding scale after determining their gross family income and family size. The staff at the CDC can help you determine if there would be a fee or not.
Typically, we do have a waiting list each semester because we enroll as many families as our licensed capacity allows prior to the beginning of the semester so students can begin on the first day of classes. Throughout the semester families drop for a variety of reasons and we refer to the waiting list to fill those openings. Once you are enrolled you have priority return for the following semester.
Applications for fall semesters are available the previous April. Applications for spring semesters are available the previous November. If summer session is offered, applications will be available in April.
