General Information


I would like to get my child into CDC. What is the first step?


The first step is to contact our main office to check for space. You can call our main line or email either Delia Acosta at


We do get busy at certain times of the year, so please allow 24-48 hours for an initial response.


Is there a fee for being on the waiting list?

There is no fee for being placed on the waiting list


Are you guaranteed a space in the program?

Unfortunately, we have limited space in our program and cannot guarantee any new family a space until we have an opening. Once a family is enrolled they must re-enroll each year in March to ensure they maintain their space.


Do you need to be enrolled in the school to attend the program?

In order to attend the School Age program, you must be enrolled at the corresponding elementary school. The only exception to this is during the summer. Our summer program is open to all families as long as space allows.


Are there any other after school programs in the area?  


The city of Redondo Beach Parks and Recreation offers a non-custodial after school program on all elementary sites. Please contact the Rec programs directly at (310) 318-0610 if you would like information on their program.
