The Children’s Center

The Harry and Grace Steele Children's Center is part of the OCC Student Services department. The Children’s Center was founded by the Associated Students of Orange Coast College (ASOCC), whose mission is to provide a quality, comprehensive child development program. The Center provides services to student-parents, faculty/staff and the community. The Children’s Center serves children 12 months to 5 years of age and accepts subsidized parent fees for childcare through California Alternative Payment Programs such as Orange County California Department of Education, and Children's Home Society.  Students who have access to CalWORKs can find support through our OCC campus CalWORKs department.  Full Cost openings are also available for all student-parents, faculty/staff and community members.

The Children’s Center website lists hours of operation, fees and waiting list information. The Children’s Center is located on Merrimac Way on the west side of the OCC campus, parking lot D.
