Ray Ellison Family Center

Ray Ellison Family Center is proud to announce it will be reopening on June 7, 2021.  We currently do have slots available for our Student Parents as well as our Faculty & Staff.  The Ray Ellison Family Center is currently accepting applications for the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program, which supports the participation of limited-income parents in postsecondary education through the provision of campus-based childcare services. Interested students, Faculty, and Staff should reach out to Rosanna Padron rpadron1@alamo.edu  for more information.

The Ray Ellison Family Center (REFC) provides a child-centered program for children of Palo Alto College students, faculty/staff, and community members. The REFC strives to provide an early childhood program that promotes the social/emotional, cognitive, language, and physical development of each child. REFC is currently offering online instruction that includes Goggle Classroom, Zoom, and Virtual Field Trips. REFC staff is dedicated to ensuring that children’s educational development continues to thrive during these unprecedented times. If you are interested in continuing your child’s learning enrichment, please contact us at pac-refc@alamo.edu.
