How to enroll my child:

The CDC enrolls children from the wait list. Toward the end of each semester currently enrolled families are offered the opportunity to reenroll. After we gather that information we are able to determine how many available spaces we have. We will enroll new families from the wait lists. We will continue to enroll new families from the wait list until all spaces have been filled. You can fill out the wait list online. The wait list is only good for one semester so a new one needs to be filled out for each semester. Once you have obtained a space you will be offered the first opportunity to reenroll and do not have to go back on the wait list unless you skip a semester.

Current CDC Rates 2021-2022

Cost of Care

PPCC students enrolled in at least 6 credit hours are eligible for a sliding fee structure based on family income. The sliding scale rate is determined by the information on the student's Federal Application for Free Student Aid (FAFSA).

The attached sliding scale rate and sliding scale determination sheet will give you a general idea of where you fall on the sliding scale, but your official rate must be obtained by the CDC from the PPCC Financial Aid office

The CDC has multiple resources to assist students with child care costs ranging from outside agencies, subsidies for military families, scholarships and grant assistance for low income students. Additional information is available at enrollment.

The CDC does accept the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (C-CCAP) for PPCC  students taking 6 or more credit hours. 

Age Groups Served

The CDC accepts children ages 6 weeks to 5 years prior to attending kindergarten.
