Kids Care

The Carlsbad Unified School District requested Carlsbad Education Foundation to be the facilitator for its on-site, childcare programs over fifteen years ago. This unique relationship has empowered CUSD with K-12 grants and services, returned through CEF from revenue provided by the childcare program. CEF Kids’ Care was established in 2004 as a non-profit program to provide childcare services to families in the CUSD, keep tuition and fees well below industry rates for comparable care, and further maximize this revenue relationship by eliminating a for-profit “middleman” contractor. CUSD and CEF continue to collaborate to pursue sustaining and expanding high-quality childcare for working families in this district.

Kids’ Care offers before and after school childcare on site at all CUSD elementary schools. Childcare is licensed by the County of San Diego Community Care Licensing according to State of California Title 22.
