The Child and Family Center, located in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences at CSULB, is an educational program which provides training of early childhood professionals in Child Development and Family Studies. The Center also provides quality childcare services primarily for CSULB employees and their families, and families from the surrounding community, as enrollment permits. Promotion of educational resources to campus parents is an important component of the Center’s mission. The Center is tied to the mission statements of the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences; the College of Health and Human Services; and California State University, Long Beach.
The Child and Family Center is a nationally accredited program for children ages 18 months-5 years. The Center is designed to model the philosophy of Developmentally Appropriate Practices from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (naeyc.org). Student teachers are observers and participants in the daily program, designed to meet the developmental needs of young children in the areas of physical/motor, cognitive, language, and affective development.
The Child and Family Center, an Accredited program from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, located in the Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Building, will hold its annual open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, April 7, 2017, in FCS rooms 107 and 109.
The center, a nationally recognized student-teacher training facility, provides childcare services for CSULB employees and their families for children 18 months to 5 years of age. The open house is an opportunity for families to receive enrollment applications and information, meet the lead teachers and administrators, learn about the center’s curriculum, and the only day to tour the facilities. Applications for the 2017-18 school year will become first available at the open house.
