Crafton Hills College (CHC) has announced that their Child Development Center will not reopen in the fall.

A statement by CHC said, “After careful consideration and out of concern for the health of College employees and the community, Crafton Hills College administration has reluctantly decided that the Crafton Hills College Child Development Center will not open in the fall.”

When CHC closed in mid-March due to COVID-19, the Center did too and since the college has decided to remain closed through the fall semester, the Center will not reopen in August like originally planned.

“The decision to not reopen the center was based on many factors, and although we are disappointed not to bring students back, I want parents to know that safety is our highest priority, and we are doing everything we can to protect our students and employees from the virus,” said Wasbotten.

According to CHC, students enrolled in child development will be provided with alternate means of completing assignments.

When open, CHC’s Child Development Center offers both community and State preschool programs for children ages 3-5 and also serves as a campus-based early education program providing a laboratory setting to students enrolled in child development courses.
