Welcome to the Cuesta College Children’s Center ECE Lab Schools!
The Cuesta College Children’s Centers programs are laboratory schools that support
students in many fields of study and offer hands-on experience in early learning classrooms.
Cuesta College has two children’s lab programs, at the San Luis Obispo campus, and
at the North County campus in Paso Robles. These programs are licensed, planned, facilitated,
and operated by Early Childhood Education professionals.
We accept children from age 18 months to 5 years. Our children’s programs are based on the educational philosophies taught in Cuesta's Early Childhood Education degree program. Within the context of the program we meet the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and language developmental needs as well as early literacy, math, science, discovery and creative interests of each child enrolled.
The Children's Center follows the college academic year, semester to semester and is closed when school is not in session, for holidays, flex days, and semester breaks observed by the college.
Our toddler programs are open:
Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., our part day program ends at 3:00 pm.
Our preschool programs are open:
Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:15 p.m., our part day program ends at 3:00 pm.
