The Child Development Centers (child care) 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, computers, and outdoor play.

The CDC’s are licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services and are in self-study for reaccreditation 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. The CDC’s are open when College classes are in session. Cost of child care is on an income-based sliding scale. Advance registration is required for all programs. Some classrooms may have a waiting list.

Both facilities have a Parent Resource Room where family community resources and parenting materials are available to all students. Workshops, meetings, and support services for parents and families are offered.
