Engaging Classrooms

The learning environment includes a balance of teacher-guided and child-initiated experiences in various environments that meet the developmental needs of the child.

Sunshine and Exercise

Sometimes, kids need a space where they can run around and be kids. A spacious yard with various activities provide these children with exercise and time with their friends.

Located on Campus

We understand the difficulties and the stress of leaving your child at a distant location, which is why the Children's Center is ideal for student parents, staff and faculty of CSU Dominguez Hills.

Our Philosophy

We believe in providing an environment that meets the developmental needs of the individual child.  We also believe that children learn best in a play-based environment where they can select from a variety of open-ended materials and experiences to enhance their physical, cognitive, and social and emotional skills.

The learning environment includes a balance of teacher-guided and child-initiated experiences in art, music and movement, dramatic play, language development, reading and writing readiness, motor development, mathematics, science, and multi-cultural awareness.  We encourage and support active, hands-on learning through exploration, manipulation, and critical thinking.

We believe children are to be respected and treated with courtesy, dignity, patience and compassion.  It is through the child’s relationship with the environment, materials, and others that they learn respect, self-regulation, problem-solving, conflict resolution, and compassion.  Believing that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher, we work to support and partner with families in their child’s development.
