Dear Isla Vista Youth Projects community,
We have made the difficult decision to close our Children's Center until at least April 30. We want to do our part to "flatten the curve" and not overwhelm our health system with the COVID- 19 virus. It is our hope that by acting now, we will help prevent wide-spread infection. During this time when our children's programs as well as local public schools are closed, we will continue to provide resources to families. Our Family Resource Center will continue to support families by phone. We will be working with our community partners to ensure that families that need food are able to receive it. And, we will be providing resources, sharing videos, hosting Facebook live events so that parents have support while they are home with children. We know this is a difficult time for our community.
Together, we will weather this crisis.
About The IVYP Children's Center
The Isla Vista Children's Center is a state-licensed child development program providing low-cost professional childcare and enrichment to children between the ages of 3 months and 6 years. Curriculum is designed to facilitate cognitive, emotional, physical, social and creative growth. Cognitive materials, literacy, music, art and imaginative play are provided in a developmentally appropriate setting. There is also a specialized component to benefit children learning English. Curriculum is designed to provide language-rich activities and to support the ethnic and cultural diversity of the children. Children benefit from participation in a free breakfast, hot lunch and snack program enjoying healthy meals cooked on site.
Providing affordable, quality childcare is especially important to us. We have developed an extensive scholarship program composed of funds from United Way, Wood Claeyssens Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation (William & Lottie Daniel Fund) and CA Department of Education.
