Programs and Services


California Children's Academy's early care and education programs include infant, toddler, and preschool age services.  Our quality early education settings provide a bilingual/multi-cultural program which enhances each child's self-esteem and reinforces pride in themselves and their heritage.

Professional staff provides a safe environment that meets the cognitive, social, physical and emotional needs of each child. But early education and care is just one aspect of our program’s services. CCA also offers family support services through referrals, parent and community education, protective service care for children at risk of abuse or neglect, and ethnic and cultural recognition.

Opportunities for parent participation, as well as access to resources, compliment the early education and care services and strengthen the family unit.  While CCA strives to be able to provide child care to every family in need, we are constantly expanding services to meet the growing needs of our communities.

Our Early Care and Education strives to provide an inclusive, nurturing environment that builds relationships with families and fosters attachment and security in children. Serving low-income parents and families with young children the program provides comprehensive education, nutrition, parent involvement and social services.

Children learn and develop when they are in a predictable environment and have an opportunity to anticipate and make choices throughout the day. Our center’s curriculum is based on reflective caregiving practices that are developmentally, culturally and linguistically appropriate. Primary caregivers take a playful approach when they interact with the children during routine care times; children are nurtured, held, and encouraged through positive support and guidance throughout the day.  Each child is encouraged to explore the language rich environment via activities such as water and sensory play, various art mediums, reading books, and dramatic play.  Hands on activities are designed to promote learning through play, while preparing the children for their future school experience.
