School Overview:
UCSD Early Childhood Center School is a play-based preschool, located on the University of California
San Diego campus, for children 3 mos. to 5-years old. Early Childhood Education students observe and
participate in classroom activities with children, under teacher supervision.

Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the school is open
to the children of full-time UCSD students, staff, and faculty, as well as a limited number of non-UCSD

Specific responsibilities of the college students depend on the age group of children and the teacher’s
instructions, but generally include assisting in childcare, the development of site projects, and the design
and implementation of lesson plans.

The center operates five developmental programs based on an age-appropriate curriculum: Young
Infants (3-12 mos.), Infants (11 mos. and walking to 24 mos.), Toddlers (2 years), Preschool (3-4 years),
and Kindergarten (5-6 years).
