Pack your child a lunch and bring them to the PRC! The kids will be kept busy with open play time, crafts, and more! Hours are Mon-Wed & Fri, 12pm-2pm (please be reminded that the PRC is a nut-free facility). $5 per hour/child. Please call the office for reservations.
Drop your children off at the PRC. Here is your opportunity to take some time for yourself. Run some errands, make an appointment, or get your nails done. Your kids will be cared for by our wonderful staffers, and will enjoy indoor and outdoor free play, crafts and story time.
The fee is $5 per hour per child.
Call ahead to reserve a space.
If you have taken a class at the Parent Resource Center, participated in one of our special events, or taken advantage of our drop-in or drop-off programs, chances are you've gotten to know our beloved caregivers, Barbara Skinner, Dora Castillo, Gladys Godoy, and Ana Quintanilla-Barrera.
Barbara has been with the PRC since its founding in 1980, and Dora since 1994. Ana came to the PRC in 1999 and Gladys has been with us since 2000. All four have a wealth of experience in working with children and all four are CPR-trained and certified. But the best thing about Barbara, Dora, Ana, and Gladys is their caring approach to childcare. They strive to get to know your children as individuals with special needs and interests. When you pick up your children after drop-off or a class, you may find Barbara taking a cranky child for a walk in the stroller, Dora on the floor reading to a child or helping her with the toys, Ana coaxing a finicky child to eat some lunch, or Gladys soothing a baby to sleep. You may also find them reading a story to a group of children, singing songs, or doing a craft. This personal and attentive approach eases the process of separation for your children and you, and makes your activities at the PRC as fun and rewarding as they should be.
We feel lucky to have such wonderful childcare at the PRC. Barbara, Ana, and Gladys play an integral role in making the PRC a warm and nurturing place for the kids and a comfortable and supportive place for you. There is a reason that the kids love Barbara, Ana and Gladys—They love the kids!
Make it a date! Get to know each other again. Take advantage of the PRC's Friday or Saturday night childcare. The fee is $5 per child per hour. Call ahead to reserve space.
We will make every effort to accomodate, please make your reservation by Wednesday at 5pm, or we cannot guarantee availability.
