About our Child Care Program

  • This is our 32nd year offering exceptional childcare to the students of Valley Vista.  Our Childcare Center is open from 6:30am to 6:15pm (excluding school hours).  We are open on school days but closed for professional development, holidays and school breaks.  If the school closes due to any sort of emergency, the Center will also close.


    TK & Kindergarten students attending before school child care are delivered to their classrooms at 8:25am and picked up after school at the classroom door by an assistant.childcare  Older children are dismissed to their classrooms in the morning and go to child care by themselves in the afternoon.  Students attending homework club head to child care when finished.


    Our program includes a wide range of indoor activity choices (painting, puzzles, Legos, dress-up, board games and crafts).  We also have an outdoor play structure, and outdoor equipment (roller skates, jump ropes, scooters, basketball and soccer). 


    Everyone has a light snack at 3:45pm.  Students are encouraged to do their homework after some play time and snack.  And a quiet space is available for homework.
