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 if space is available. You can call our main office at (310) 798-8683 ext. 1312, 1322 or email us at [email protected]


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 however, if you are offered a space in our program there is a $150 non-refundable processing fee.


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/April.


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

Yes, in order to attend our 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.


What are the hours of operation?

On school days we are open from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. On non school days (elementary schools are closed and CDC is open) we are open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Are the hours different for preschool?

No, the hours are not different for the preschool program.
