Campus Children's Center Lab

The Children's Center, housed in the Family and Consumer Education Center (building J), provides quality care for infants and preschoolers between three months and five years of age. The center serves as the lab school for Early Childhood Studies students who assist the credentialed staff in providing an enriched learning environment designed to foster social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth for young children.

The Children's Center is open for Fall Hours Monday – Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

The philosophy of the program is to provide each child with the tools and the opportunity to be actively involved in the learning process, to experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and to pursue his/her own interests. As an integral part of the Early Childhood Studies program, the center provides a multicultural, anti-bias inclusion approach where children have the opportunity to experience differences in gender, race/ethnicity, abilities, learning styles, and individual needs.

The Children's Center is available to student parents en-rolled in nine or more units during fall and spring semesters, six or more units during summer session, and/or CalWORKs or Title V participants. Limited staff spaces are available. Applications from student parents taking less than the minimum units are accepted on a space-available basis. An orientation session is required prior to enrollment.

For further information, contact center director Yvon Frazier at 922-6966 ext. 3569 or email yfrazier@hancockcollege.edu

ESL Spotlight

Maria Ayala
ESL Student

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
