Child Development Centers
The Child Development Centers located at the Centennial and the Rampart Range Campuses offer comprehensive educational child care services for children age six weeks to five years in infant, toddler, and preschool programs. Children participate in art activities, science, math, music, creative play, language arts, and outdoor play. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 7:15 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The CDC’s are licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services, a Quality Level 4 rating from Colorado Shines and are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The Centers are staffed by certified early childhood teachers who are assisted by student staff teacher aides. The Centers serve as a practicum site for students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education Program and the Area Vocational Program.
Children of Pikes Peak Community College students, staff, and faculty are eligible to enroll. Cost of child care is on an income-based sliding scale; other financial assistance may be available. Community families are welcome to enroll on a space available basis and are not eligible for the sliding scale. Advance registration is required for all programs. Some classrooms may have a waiting list. The waiting list form can be completed online at www.ppcc.edu/cdc.
