• Preschool Application: Now Enrolling 3-Year-Olds!
  • Request Elementary Child Care for 2023-2024
  • Middle School Teen Scene ASES/RAP Application

July 2023 Update

  • If you are interested in child care for elementary school please fill out an application by clicking on the link at the purple apple above. Please know that we are currently on hold with adding any more students to our elementary school child care programs until we can hire more staff and/or students drop from the program. We may not be able to offer more spots until August or the first few weeks of school. We continue to work to expand our capacity by hiring more staff, finding community partners and auditing our attendance regularly.  As we increase our capacity or families disenroll from the program, we will contact families on the waiting list to enroll.  


    Without the guarantee of child care for next school year, we understand that you are placed in a difficult position.  We encourage you to consider securing child care elsewhere at this time. Once you complete an application, your child's name will remain on our waiting list. If we are able to offer you a spot, we will reach out to you directly. 

    As always, our goal is to offer space to everyone who needs it as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience as we try to meet the needs of every family.  We will continue to work on your behalf throughout the summer.

  • If you have difficulty accessing EZChildTrack and/or completing an application, please email us at CDCC@gusd.net with your name, your child’s name, and your child’s school so that we can troubleshoot the issue. It may take us some time to get back to you as we troubleshoot your concerns, but we will honor the date and time of your email in the application process. This is a new system for us, so please bear with us as we work through getting families access to applications and accounts.
