Eagle's Nest Childcare

A Before & After School Childcare Enrichment Program
at Foothill Elementary School

Eagle’s Nest is a convenient, on-campus child care program filled with arts and crafts, games, and homework help!  We are open before school, during Late Start Days too, after school and during school breaks.  Our program provides school-age children with a wholesome, caring and enriching environment.

Our Mission:  The Eagle’s Nest program reflects the SUSD philosophy.  Since this program is offered through the District, “Enrichment of the Educational Experience” of the child is our focus.

Eagle’s Nest is SUSD’s way of providing quality childcare for your children before and after school hours.  Full-day childcare is also offered during regular school vacations.  Our program is staged with a credentialed teacher and qualified aides that work closely with the school staff to develop programs tailored to the needs of the school-aged children to act as an extension of their education experience.

Our Program: A variety of interesting activities enhance the educational experience of the child by addressing the same goals that are used in the regular classroom.  Activities are presented in a relaxed atmosphere with lots of active participation in subjects such as: art, science, math, reading, drama and social studies.  Homework time, snack time and outdoor playtime are also scheduled.
