Children of Enrolled Cal-SAFE Program Students
Enrolled students may voluntarily enroll their children in child care and development services funded by the Cal-SAFE Program. There is no minimum age for enrollment, but infants must have a release from the pediatrician before enrollment. The average age of the infant for initial enrollment is between four to six weeks. Each child must have a health evaluation form signed by a physician, or his or her designee, before the child is allowed on the school campus or is enrolled in the child care and development program (Education Code Section 54746 [c]).
The child of a Cal-SAFE student is eligible for child care funded by the Cal-SAFE Program until the age of five years or until the child is enrolled in kindergarten, whichever occurs first. However, the teen parent must first be enrolled in the Cal-SAFE Program for the child to be enrolled.
