Isabel Patterson CDC Childcare Rates

Application Priority

Priority for enrollment in the Infant Toddler, Preschool and School Age programs is:

1st Priority: CSULB students
2nd Priority: CSULB staff/faculty
3rd Priority: CSULB alumni
4th Priority: Community

Following the registration of student-parent children in each program, children of CSULB staff, faculty, alumni and then community are offered services, as space allows.

A waiting list application form must be completed and returned to the Center Office, along with a $10 application fee. An application fee is not required from students eligible for subsidized childcare. The application fee is not refundable and is not applied toward any other fees.

Since we offer flexible scheduling we never know what hours might be available. We recommend you turn in a waiting list application and then we can call you if any open spots (might be part-time) become available. You can apply anytime to be placed on the waiting list, even when you're pregnant.

Do you offer financial aid?

A State-subsidized (California) and federal (CCAMPIS) financial assistance program is available to low-income students during the academic year. CSULB student parents with the lowest income adjusted for family size who are enrolled in undergraduate and credential programs will have priority.

This subsidized program serves a limited number of families. To apply, parents must provide proof of income documentation and complete a Request for Subsidized Childcare form. For more information,call (562) 985-5333.

Parents: Do you need help paying for childcare?

Free and reduced-cost placement is available immediately in the PRESCHOOL program for CSULB students, faculty and staff who qualify. Space is available until the program is filled. To find out if you meet the criteria to qualify for a subsidy please call (562) 985-5333.
