The Child Development Center and the Los Angeles Community College District follow the same school-year calendar: therefore, the Child Development Center is closed when the Community College District is closed. Parents are not charged for the days the Child Development Center is closed.
Parents are financially responsible for the program hours that the child is enrolled. There are no reductions or refunds for early pick-ups. When you sign the child fee agreements, you are signing a contract for the full semester. If you decide to withdraw your child, you will be financially responsible until we receive notification, verbally or in writing, that you are withdrawing.
