Due to COVID -19 OC Child Development Center will be closed until further notice

The Oxnard College Child Development Center provides high-quality on-campus care and preschool education for the children ages three years through pre-kinder.  The Center welcomes Oxnard College students, employees, and community members.  Our program embraces the Creative Curriculum® philosophy that "young children learn best by doing" and offers a well-rounded program that covers critical thinking, creative experiences, science, music, language and literacy, movement education, social development, and school readiness.

Additionally, the Center serves as a model laboratory school for future child development professionals.  The program allows students to observe the classroom interactions and have hands-on experiences where they can blend the theoretical with the practical, integrating knowledge with experience.

The OC CDC is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM–5:30 PM and offers different schedules to meet the need of the community.
