Alfa Da Childcare
Special care in a learning setting
Our goal is to provide for the total developmental needs of each child, understanding that children will be in care most of their waking hours. It is our goal to enrich the areas of cognitive, social, emotional, creative and perceptual motor skills for each child.
Our program is one of freedom within structure; allowing lots of space for children to develop individually and according to their own interest and abilities. This is enhanced by a daily schedule of planned activities.
It is hoped that each child will develop the flexibility they need to cope with our ever-changing world and a healthy curiosity that will impel them to explore the world on their own.

We are located within walking distance of two playgrounds and one library. Onsite we have a large backyard with fruit trees and a vegetable garden.
I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a BA in Developmental Psychology. I was born into a household that cared for foster children from Birth to 6 yrs old. I was raised in my mother's childcare center of 57 children from birth to 5 yrs old. At an early age I was helping the teachers in the infant/toddler and preschool rooms. Working with young children comes naturally for me.
After working with teenage girls in a group home for several years; I decided to return to young children. Working with young children helps to set the foundation for their growth, socialization, creativity and development.
