The Bakersfield College Child Development Center is scheduled to reopen Monday with two enrollment options: the traditional drop-off option or a virtual learning environment.
Child development centers were approved as part of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Stage 2 reopening following closures prompted by COVID-19.
The reopening will occur in stages, with this first stage focused on providing service on campus to the children of essential workers. Students taking summer classes will have the opportunity to enroll their children at the Child Development Center.
Information about how BC’s Child Development Center will meet guidelines are available on its website https://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/student/cdc.
The center closed March 17 ahead of Newsom’s stay at home orders. Teachers have been providing resources to families, engaging in individual and group classroom zoom meetings and providing developmentally appropriate activities for the children to learn through virtual classrooms.
