Child care programs in castro valley


Sunrise Child care offers childcare options that accommodates families full time or part time that only need 2-3 days a week. Our services are available Monday-Friday but require that a weekly routine schedule be arranged.

We also offer part-time care for Infants; four hours on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in two different groups:

Group#1: 7:30 am to 11:30am.

Group#2: 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

Children 4-10 years of age can participate in Reading & Writing in Spanish and Art classes during school vacations.

Our objective is to offer quality service without leaving a dent in your wallet.

We offer reasonable quotes depending on the amount of days and hours needed.

We understand that the search for child care can be difficult and even stressful but finding the right place can be even more satisfying and comforting.


The curriculum is centered on learning and development that is adapted to the age of each child. Learning materials are specific to their age. Interactions between adults and children aid little ones in developing various abilities while doing activities at the same time. Educational goals are integrated in playtime.

For example; if your child plays with a puzzle, he/she is developing his/her motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and reasoning while they attempt to put the pieces together. The various activities develop the child’s critical thinking and language skills, focusing on cognitive skills. With each passing day, children learn though exploration and observation. Success is reached with the assistance of well-planned learning objectives that integrate all aspects of learning.

Children behave differently at every age which is why we offer programming geared towards specific ages. By redirecting misbehavior we assist children in expressing their feelings through gestures and words in accordance to their age.

Allow your child to grow in an environment where is self-confident.

Infants: 6 Month to 2 Years Old

An individual plan of action is created for each child. Playtime is scheduled on a daily basis to promote learning and development. Infants have the opportunity to engage in group and individual playtime both indoors and outdoors.

Infants under our care will enjoy naps and down time as necessary. Infants participate in activities that stimulate the brain and encourage “first words”. We facilitate educational play that integrate appropriate learning materials for each age to develop fine & gross motor skills, cognitive and socio-emotional skills.

At Sunrise Child Care your child will enjoy a day of fun and learning as well as appropriate socialization

Toddler: 2-3 years old

Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn better through their own experiences. Our program will facilitate exploration and interaction with the world around them in an environment that is both, safe and cozy!

Each day is filled with fun activities that stimulate growth and development in children that gives them the comfort and confidence to speak and develop language skills. We assist in building and growing vocabulary in both English & Spanish.

Preschool: 3-4 years old

The Preschool curriculum is centered on developing communication skills, posing questions, learning concepts, reading & writing, math, and building Spanish vocabulary. The curriculum is presented in a fun and interactive manner to promote the desire to learn.

When children reach Preschool age they begin to develop their self-esteem, they feel ready to take the world in their hands and explore all its aspects.
