Schedule a Visit

We love to have visitors! Because we want to give each family a personal and in-depth tour, we ask that you call in advance to schedule a visit since we cannot accommodate drop-in visits. To arrange for a day and time, please call our office at (818) 354-3418.

For the Infant-Toddler and Preschool Programs, visits last about an hour in length and are normally scheduled for Wednesday mornings at 9:30 am. For the School-Age Program, times vary according to which of our 5 sites you would like to visit, but you may schedule your visit Monday through Friday. For the Cooperative Preschool at Caltech, tours are offered at selected time during the year.

“I feel so proud when I walk prospective parents through the Center on an enrollment tour and see teachers singing and dancing with children, reading stories, blowing bubbles, playing peek-a-boo, sitting in the sandbox, digging with children, mixing ooblik at a water table; playing catch, being the passenger on the back of a child’s tricycle and just being so actively engaged with the children and showing such a sense of enjoyment and gratification in what they do each day.”

- Sheri Whalen, Master Lead Teacher, and with the CEC since 1985
