Early Childhood Center


The San Antonio College Early Childhood Center provides childcare services for SAC students, staff, faculty, and community according to our eligibility requirements. The San Antonio College Early  Childhood Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. In the spring of 1986, the Center became the first NAEYC accredited center in San Antonio and has continually been accredited. The center is licensed by Texas Health and Human Services and is also a Texas School Ready participant and a Texas Rising Star Provider- 4 Star Level with the City of San Antonio.


Program Overview

The Center is open to children, ages 12 months to 4 years (and those turning 5 yrs after the September 1 cut off for Kindergarten) of qualified San Antonio College students, staff, faculty, and community. The program philosophy focuses on the unique ways in which young children learn. It strives to meet the needs of the "whole child" including the areas of social, emotional, physical, cognitive, creative, and language development. We use a play-based child centered Project Approach as our curriculum, which emphasizes natural curiosity, enabling children to interact, question, connect, problem-solve, communicate, reflect, and more. Data is gathered and used in combination with Brigance to help with children’s assessments of developmental growth. We are a training laboratory for Early Childhood Studies students in an early care and education program.
