Our Mission

We provide young children with educational environments, in partnership with families and the community.

About Our Children’s Programs

Our child care programs offer a gently structured environment; each child’s day moves between times of free choice of play and activities to structured activities such as group time, meals, and rest time.

A variety of activities and projects are offered throughout the day such as science, cooking, art, crafts, music and movement. We offer a balance of stimulating and quiet activities that are appropriate to each age group and meet the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of individual children.

The centers maintain low teacher/child ratios of 1:8.

Fees are based on a sliding fee scale. We offer subsidized care for families who qualify. Reimbursement is provided from the State of CA Department of Education, Child Development Division. The County of Santa Cruz and cities of Santa Cruz and Watsonville also provide funding, in addition to community donors and foundations.
