The Cal Poly Pomona Children's Center has received a grant award for $127,009 from the California Department of Education. The funds, issued for the 2005-06 academic year, will be used to provide 40 qualifying, low-income children ages 3-5 with free preschool services.
The money will also be used to subsidize the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) grant used for other students receiving free child care services who qualify as recipients of the Federal Pell Grant.
For 30 years, the Cal Poly Pomona Children's Center has provided low-cost quality day care for the children (2 years of age until entry into first grade) of students, faculty, staff and community members. The center's main objective is to assist student-parents in maintaining enrollment at Cal Poly Pomona by providing a quality child care program designed to meet the social, emotional and cognitive needs of young children. The Children's Center is funded by Associated Students Inc. and the division of Student Affairs.
