Child Development Center

The Mary Meta Lazarus Child Development Center provides an equal opportunity child care program for children two and one-half through five years old who have a parent attending CSM, Skyline or Cañada. 

Families may be eligible for financial assistance. Fees for subsidized child care services are based on family size, gross monthly income and need for child care in accordance with criteria set by California Department of Education and California Department of Social Services. 

Fees for non-subsidized child care are based on the age of the enrolled child and the individual schedule (full-day or part-day). In addition, there is a registration fee charged each semester. Breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided. Meals meet the nutritional guidelines of the USDA and the CA Department of Social Services Child Nutrition Services. 

Full tuition families are charged a $50.00 registration fee each semester. All fees are assessed based on your child’s regular schedule. You will be charged for days regularly scheduled including any days your child does not attend. Full days are defined as more than four and a half (4.5) hours. Part days are defined as less than four and a half (4.5) hours.

Full tuition family fees are based on a daily rate as follows:
