Child Development Center Application Information


Applications are available to pick up in the Child Development Center during office hours. We are located on the CRC campus across from the parking structure. There are four, 20-minute visitor parking spaces for your convenience to use while you pick up an application packet.

Please note, office hours are limited during the summer, and there are no child care services offered over summer break.

Make copies of all documents before bringing them in. We are not able to make copies for you.


Your application will be accepted when you have ALL of the required documentation. Applications are then ranked based on family size and income. The lowest income families receive the highest ranking. CRC students are given priority over other students and working families. Higher income families may be accepted if space allows.

Once we have your complete application, allow two weeks for processing to find out if we will have a space for your child. Once you have been accepted you will be required to come in to complete additional paperwork before your child is enrolled.
