About Programs for Children

Fresno State Programs for Children is a comprehensive early care and education program that strives to ensure the optimal development of each child enrolled through provision of licensed, safe, hygienic, physical facilities; appropriate educational programs; well-qualified staff; varied opportunities for parent involvement; and information and support in obtaining social, health, psychological and nutritional services. We have a unique program where parents, teachers, children, university students, faculty, and others work together to provide a program rich in experiences, relationships and learning.


Fresno State Programs for Children includes three centers. The Campus Children's Infant/Toddler Center, The Campus Children's Preschool Center and the Joyce M. Huggins Early Education Center. The centers provide services for children between the ages of 3 months and 12 years.
