The Growing Place's Full Profile



The Growing Place says

The Growing Place is a place of childcare excellence, owned and operated by Theodora D. Speraw, MA. We are licensed by the State of California, Department of Public and Social Services, for children from six weeks old through twelve years old. The Growing Place was established in September of 1978. We started out in a home with five staff members and provided care for forty preschoolers. Since then, our program has grown to include an infant/toddler program and an extensive before and after school program. The Growing Place offers children an opportunity to grow in all developmental areas through a well-designed, integrated program of activities. We believe that as caregivers, consideration must be given to the "whole" child and how we can best meet those needs on an individual basis. The program components consist of an integration of many approaches to the teaching of specific skills. We want to keep children interested, focused, and challenged.




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
