Child Development Center

The Oxnard College Child Development Center provides on-campus childcare and early childhood education to children between the ages of 2 years through 5 years. The children's program is well-rounded and covers critical thinking, creative experiences, science, music, language and literacy, movement education, social development, and school readiness. The Center serves as a model lab school for college students who are learning to observe and work with children. A $50.00 registration fee will cover processing and hold a space for a child.  Children of Oxnard College students, staff and community members are welcome to apply. Contact the Center for dates of registration. Tuition fees are paid on a monthly basis in advance of services per a contracted schedule. There is a minimum of three hours per day, and two days per week. Registration materials are available at the center. Phone (805) 986-5801 for more information.

Half-day enrollment*: 3 hours = $22/day ($20/day for OC students), $6.25 for each additional hour ($6 for OC students)

Full-day enrollment*: 6 hours = $35/day

*All children attending the Child Development Center must be contracted for regular hours of attendance. Each child must attend a minimum of 2 days a week, 3 hours per day. Due to licensing requirements and fire regulations there cannot be trading of days or use of time not contracted. Monthly tuition amounts are provided to allow for a more convenient payment plan. There are NO refunds for holidays, individual days when the college is closed, or individual days when a child is absent. No tuition is charged for winter or spring break.  Payments must be made at our Student Business Office prior to the 10th day of each month. A receipt must be provided to our front office showing that the tuition for the current month was paid. A $50.00 registration fee per semester is required prior to enrollment.*
