• About Child Care

    Child Care Program

    Our mission is to encourage the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of the children who participate. The caring and qualified staff is able to provide a safe, nurturing, on-site environment that is designed to help all children feel successful. Our Child Care Leaders are required to have a minimum of 12 units of college level training in Child Development and School-Age curriculum and recreation. Both Leaders and Assistants are experienced in working with school age children and have taken training classes offered through the district. All Leaders, as well as many Assistants are also CPR and First Aid certified.

    The students enrolled in CVUSD Child Care have daily choices of activities and opportunities for individual expression. Students may choose to participate in arts and crafts, physical development activities, music and movement, computer and science centers and academic support. Our curriculum emphasizes the development of a sense of personal competence and interpersonal skills, such as conflict management and group cooperation.

    Our program supports children in developing skills to make good choices, play safely, build self esteem and to become independent learners. To enroll in our Child Care program, a student must be enrolled in one of our CVUSD schools, be potty-trained and able to meet his or her basic needs.
