Child Development Center

American River College operates child care programs for student-parents who are continuing their education, Los Rios Community College District staff, and the community at large. The Child Development Center provides education and care for young children and a laboratory for students preparing to become teachers in the field of early childhood education.

Children enjoy play spaces designed to engage their developing minds and bodies as well as a rich curriculum that nourishes their understanding of the world. As part of the American River College Center for Early Childhood Teacher Preparation, the Child Development Center supports students and staff with child care and development services. It also serves as a state-of-the-art student teaching laboratory for students from many academic disciplines as they prepare to work with families and young children.
