Ray Ellison Family Center

Due to the current public health situation related to COVID-19, the Ray Ellison Family Center is currently closed. We are closely evaluating the current public health situation related to COVID-19 and developing a plan to reopen with appropriate precautionary measures to protect the health and wellness of our staff and students. These procedures will be guided by recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Texas Health and Human Services, and the Alamo Colleges Return-to-Campus Task Force.

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.
