Programs for Children

Our Programs

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. The program works in partnership with Fresno State and the larger community to provide opportunities for learning and for developing partnerships that will benefit young children and families.

Fresno State Programs for Children, Inc. provides services to the children of the California State University, Fresno student body and to a limited extent, faculty, staff, and the larger community.

The programs are designed to meet the unique needs of each child in order to help them build fundamental skills, develop critical social relationships, and acquire a valuable education that will help put them ahead in all aspects of their lives.

Infant/Toddler Program

(Ages 3 Months - 2 Years)

To support the unique needs of infants and toddlers, teachers are responsive to infants’ and toddlers’ individual nonverbal cues and provide immediate physical comfort and needed care. Teacher’s interactions should be based on the child’s temperament and level of arousal. Caregiving routines are used as an opportunity to build a one-to-one relationship with each child. Social interactions with teachers should be ongoing and include verbal and nonverbal face-to-face communication.
