ASI Children’s Center

The ASI Children’s Center serves as a family support service for Sacramento State students by providing child care programming. Enrollment priority is given to Sac State students, and then opened to the rest of the Sac State community (staff/faculty). Accredited by the NAEYC, the Children’s Center is an exemplary program which models current principles and practice in child development. The Children’s Center serves as a home-oriented environment to meet a child’s emotional, physical, intellectual and social growth needs. The Children’s Center promotes educational experiences in the area of early childhood education by employing a large number of Sacramento State students.

We are celebrating 50 years of service! Take a moment to view our history book here
