Ladera Elementary's CDC offers before and after-school childcare for Kindergarten through 6th grade. CDC works closely with Ladera school teachers to support children’s academic success. They also offer a specialized Kindergarten Enrichment program for alternate shifts of Kindergarten. 


CDC also offers a 1/2 day licensed preschool from 8:30-12:30.  We serve children ages 2.9-5 years of age.  Preschool is a time to experience the world and socialize in new and exciting ways! We provide a safe, home-like environment that supports hands-on learning, self-directed investigations, and imaginative play. CDC's curriculum introduces math, science, language, and social skills, giving children the foundation that prepares them for elementary school and beyond.
