Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Glen Arbor School provides quality childcare to young children of working families and parents that are in job training, students, and low income families. We provide a developmentally appropriate pre-school program following California State guidelines for Kindergarten readiness, with a special focus on reading and literature. We provide breakfast, and two well balanced snacks per day, as well as lunches for those without. We offer grocery and paper supplies once a month for low-income or in-need families with the help and support of Second Harvest Food Bank. We provide daily aid positions, evening cleaning jobs, and provide our families with a list of jobs that can be done in exchange for childcare. We provide social events to encourage communication interaction. We hold parent/teacher conferences each year to assess and evaluate each child's progress in our program. We are a Human Care Alliance (HCA) Member and Professional Association for Childhood Education (PACE) Member.
