Child Care Services

The Skyline College Child Development Laboratory Center (CDLC) provides a comprehensive child care and early education program for students, staff, and faculty of Skyline College and community members. The CDLC is child-centered and offers a play-oriented approach to learning in a safe and nurturing environment. The Master Teachers are highly qualified and certificated professionals in Early Childhood Education. The CDLC also serves as a laboratory school for Skyline College students in various disciplines and a model training site for Early Childhood Education students and the community. The program provides the following services for children and families: child care and early education experiences from 7:30-5:00 pm during the regular academic calendar, three nutritious daily meals, observation and assessment of children’s typical development, resources and referrals for a wide variety of supports for children and families, parent information and workshops on topics relevant to families with young children, and home visits/conferences to discuss children’s development and school readiness skills. The Skyline College CDLC is partially funded by the California Department of Education and income eligible student-families may receive child care subsidies.
