About the Santiago Canyon College Child Development Center
The Santiago Canyon College Child Development Center (SCC CDC) serves children from two to five years of age. The center offers a full-day program from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The curriculum used by RSCCD Child Development Services is the High Scope Curriculum, which is based on active learning. We believe that children learn best through hands-on experiences with people, materials, events, and ideas. The RSCCD Child Development Center teachers support the children's current level of thinking and challenge them to advance to the next stage through support and differentiated instruction.
