Child Development Center

The Fairplex Child Development Center is a private, non-profit center operated by the Los Angeles County Fair Association since 1980 and in alliance with the University of La Verne since 1991. We cherish children.

We serve children and families from eight weeks to preschool age with specially designed infant, toddler and preschool classrooms, which emphasize developmentally appropriate experiences for the children and is regarded as one of the finest facilities of its kind in California. Children are admitted into the various programs regardless of income, religion, ethnicity, gender, culture, language or developmental differences, based upon enrollment space availability.

Our program is proud of our highly trained and qualified staff certified in early childhood education, many of whom hold advanced degrees in child development or related fields. The Center also serves as a training and field study site for students enrolled in the University of La Verne's early education program. This partnership with the University ensures that the Center program incorporates the highest standards to encourage optimum child development opportunities. With additional funding, the Child Development Center will maintain the high quality of their program.

Mission Statement

Every community needs quality child care. But when the emphasis grows from “care” to “development,” the benefits increase dramatically for our children, families, and society as a whole. With that vital goal in mind, we at the University of La Verne have partnered with the Fairplex Child Development Center since 1991.

Education Philosophy

As a well-known African proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The Fairplex Child Development Center strives to be a key part of that “village.” The Center is a private, non-profit organization in partnership with the Los Angeles County Fair Association and the University of La Verne.
