UCSB Early Childhood Care & Education Services


Thank you for considering the Orfalea Family Children’s Center at UCSB. As a volunteer or intern, you have the opportunity to make a significant impact on children’s lives and the quality of care families receive at the Children’s Center. 

As a program accredited by National Academy for Early Childhood Programs, the center strives to provide a safe, consistent, and secure environment for families while fostering a sense of wonder, curiosity, problem solving and fun! While volunteering at the Center you will have many opportunities to interact with children between the ages of 3 months and 5 years, assist in curriculum set up (and clean-up!) and help maintain our developmentally appropriate environments.

The quality of our program depends on your participation. Thank you for your commitment.
