Founded in 1974, Palo Alto Community Child Care features a sick care program, an infant-toddler center, a preschool program and two part-time centers. Its programs were created to provide comprehensive child care within the framework of quality developmental standards. While building a sense of community for all children and families, its goal is to enhance each individual child's self-concept. Age appropriate experiences provide opportunities for independent decision-making and social interaction, while challenging both physical and cognitive skills. Palo Alto Community Child Care is located in Palo Alto, Calif.
