Coastside Children’s Programs has served children and families from diverse multicultural and socio-economic backgrounds since 1975. We administer education and childcare programs that provide quality educational, recreational, and skill-building activities through preschools, before and after-school programs and full-time summer camps.
Children constantly grow and change physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, cognitively, and creatively. These changes are consistent, yet individual to each child. It is our goal to guide children toward success by creating an environment that facilitates growth, strengthens individuality, and promotes creative freedom through a blend of teacher-directed and child-initiated activities. Our primary method to achieve this goal is for teachers to provide a play and project-based curriculum. The curriculum is developed by the teaching staff through observation and assessment providing the flexibility for the curriculum to be adapted to children's interests and needs. This tailored approach to curriculum planning gives teachers an opportunity to scaffold the child's learning experience to promote and foster a love of learning.
Our teachers and staff take pride in the fact that in our programs:
"All 3 of my children have attended a CCP program and we’ve always found the teachers and staff to be incredibly attentive, communicative, and caring. My twins are speech delayed and the caregivers are incredibly patient and helpful to them. They look forward to going to preschool and are already showing more independence after only a couple of months in the program" - Parent
"CCP gave me the ability to work and to know that my child was being cared for by teachers/staff who love and have a passion for helping my child. I wouldn’t be able to work without CCP. I like how CCP always has different and fun activities and field trips and camps for the kids and they are all educational I’m so grateful for being able to have my child at CCP. The staff is amazing their dedication and kindness exceeds all of my expectations. Thank you so much." - Parent
"I cannot say enough great things about CCP. They have really supported my son’s social and emotional well-being. My son is autistic and they have been so patient with him. My son always looks forward to attending and I can confidently say they have always provided a safe and fun environment for all kids. I thank them for always being so positive, having excellent communication, and being so flexible for working parents. I highly recommend the program!" - Parent
"I have a personal connection to Farallone View having gone there as a child. Having my children go to the school I went to was something I hoped for, however, the transition to elementary school was concerning me. Having the preschool on the same campus was a big plus. Also, having a diverse staff, who truly care about the kids made it easier for me to leave my children there during the day." - Parent
"I have two children at CCP and they both LOVE the program! They ask daily if they can stay later. They get very excited during school breaks when CCP is open because they get more time at CCP. The teachers are so kind and patient with the students. The monthly curriculum plans always include activities my boys have fun doing. As a full-time working parent, it gives me such piece of mind knowing my boys are getting wonderful quality after-school care that they thoroughly enjoy going to!" - Parent
