Parenting Resources

If you are currently seeking childcare for your child(ren), please indicate so on the Thrive Resource Request Form and we will connect with you in 3-5 business days. This timeline may be extended if we experience a high volume of requests.
Victor Valley College Child Development Center

The Thrive Resource Center can connect eligible students to the Child Development Center after submitting a Thrive Resource Request Form. The Child Development Center is experiencing a high volume of applications and currently has a waitlist. Students are still encouraged to apply, as depending on their situation & eligibility, there is a chance of being moved to the top of the waitlist. 

The Child Development Center serves ages 18 months to 5 years old. If your child is 6 years or older, we encourage you to apply at the Child Care Resource Center (CCRC)
