Child Development Center at CRC

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 Support for Parents and Families

For more information, contact the center by email at

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.
