The Center also serves as a preschool laboratory for college students studying Child Development. The center is open to the public, but students are entitled to priority enrollment. A new waiting list begins each semester as the Ventura College campus schedule comes out. Slots fill fast. You are encouraged to get on the waiting list as soon as possible. Brochures are available at the Center or call (805) 289-6030.
