The Children's Center at CSUB Bakersfield is now open to the Bakersfield community and is currently enrolling for the fall 2014 quarter. Children ages 18 months to five years of age (who are not attending kindergarten) are eligible for enrollment.  Space is limited.

The CSUB Children's Center provides quality childcare programs for the children of Student-Parents, Faculty, Staff and the Bakersfield Community. The center focuses on child development and education for children as part of a Pre-K curriculum developed by Houghton Mifflin. The Children's Center staff takes pride in communicating with parents to ensure their child's well-being and growth.

“The center features a safe, relaxed, and caring atmosphere in which children are free to explore, learn, create, and grow through play,” said Gladys Garcia-Jara, Children's Center Director.  “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.”

Priority for enrollment is given to children of CSUB Students, Faculty, and Staff. Half-day and full-day programs are available. Subsidized funding is available for qualifying families. For more information, call 661-654-3165 or visit
