Siskiyou Child Care Center (the Center)
The Siskiyou Child Care Center is a program of the Siskiyou Child Care Council, a private non-profit agency providing a variety of services to children and families in Siskiyou County. The Center is located in the same building that contains the Siskiyou Child Care Council Administrative offices and the Toy Lending Library.
The Center operates two programs. The first is a half-day preschool progam (Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. until noon) for three and four year old children whose family qualify by income. The second program is designed for parents who are working or attending school and have a "need" for child care. Children's schedule is based on the parents work and/or school schedule. Families qualify for this program by income, family size and need of child care services. This program serves children from 2 1/2 through 6 years of age. The Center also offers child care to full-cost families who do not qualify for state-subsidized care.
Our basic philosophy is that every child is unique and of supreme worth. Early Childhood Education should be a non-stigmatizing, positive, child-centered experience. Children learn and process their world through play.
Fun, Creative and educational activities are provided at the Center by experienced and credentialed Early Childhood Education teachers and aides.
