Alert: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

COVID-19 Update

Out of an abundance of caution and despite having no confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Kern County, the Director of Public Health Services and the Kern County Superintendent of Schools, have recommended the temporary closure of the county’s schools as we all work together to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). I regret to inform you that after much deliberation the CSUB Children’s Center has decided to follow the Kern County Director of Public Health Services recommendation.

The Children’s Center’s closure timetable is as follows:

Closed: Wednesday, March 18, 2020
Reopen: Tuesday, April 14, 2020.


Quality Child Care at It's Best

The CSUB Children’s Center provides quality childcare programs for Student-Parents, Faculty, Staff and the Bakersfield Community. Children ages 6 months through 5 years of age (who are not attending kindergarten) are eligible for admission. Priority for enrollment is given to children of CSUB Students, Faculty, and Staff. Half-day and full-day programs are available, but are dependant of the approval of the Director.

The Children's Center features a safe, relaxed, and caring atmosphere in which children are free to explore, learn, create, and grow through play. We provide opportunities for growth and development in the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive areas. Every child is important, and we welcome all children and families.
