How to Apply for Child Care

If you are interested in applying for care at either the Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) or Mesa Child Development Center (MCDC), please submit a separate application for each child you wish to enroll either online or by mail. Each application must be accompanied by a $35 check (payable to UC Regents) for the non-refundable processing fee. If your child has not yet reached an eligible enrollment age, you may still apply and have your child placed on a waiting list.
