Programs Overview

The Child Development Department is happy to provide two different program options for children under 5 years of age.

  • Full-Time Program
    The Full-Time Program for children ages 0-5 provides a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, creative, linguistic, and cognitive development of each child.

  • ‚ÄčPart-Time Program
    The Part-Time Program provides a learning environment that develops language and literacy, provides computer experiences, mathematical and scientific thinking, socialization and play experiences, parent education activities and a daily meal. This free program is available to 3 and 4 year old children whose family income does not exceed the State guidelines.

Quality Start San Bernardino: We are excited to announce that the Child Development Program is participating in Quality Start San Bernardino County (QSSB), a Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) initiative! QSSB is designed to provide quality improvement support, professional development opportunities, and educational tools to increase quality in early learning experiences in San Bernardino.

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support: The Child Development Program will be implementing Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS). We will be incorporating and teaching behavioral expectations in our daily lesson. We will support and respond to children’s behavior in a positive manner and help children engage in appropriate behavior rather than inappropriate behaviors.
The Child Development Program will focus on three easy to remember behavioral expectations:

  • Be Safe

  • Be Responsible

  • Be Respectful
