Hopefully everyone is having a pleasant and restful summer. The staff of the San Diego City College is looking forward to the return of you and your child.

Please read this page carefully as it contains important information for your child to attend the San Diego City College Child Development Center for the 2014-2015 school year.

All families are required to be recertified for the fall semester. The center will be open Monday, August 4th through Thursday, August 8th from 8:30am – 10:30am to start the recertification process. You will be meeting with the CDC /Head Start staff. Preschool parents only: Please bring the enrolled child for some parent/child activities that assist the teachers in knowing where your child’s interests and skills are. Please plan on being at the center for a minimum of one hour so those activities can be done. Failure to recertify your child during this time may result in termination from the San Diego City College Child Development Center.
