Our Programs

The Cal Poly Pomona Children’s Center is designed to create an atmosphere where children can grow emotionally, intellectually, socially and physically.

Every child is valued as an individual and is provided with a diverse and responsive environment. We believe “Play” is the business of childhood.

What a child experiences is what he or she will learn. Center staff will provide a learning environment with opportunity to explore, interact and experience their surroundings.

Parents are highly encouraged to participate with the learning experience at the center and at home. With the help of parents, children will receive the necessary skills that will empower them for future scholastic success.

We strive to foster a secure, nurturing and educational environment that encourages children to develop at their own pace in all areas.

The curricula that we use are:

  • Creative Curriculum
  • High Scope Framework
