The San Geronimo Valley Day Care Center was established in 1975 by Judy Jessop and was located under the painted rainbow in the East Room of the Community Center building. The program has been a Valley staple ever since with the Zoila Berardi directing the program for the last 40 years.
The Day Care staff has always emphasized a playful and loving atmosphere, encouraging socialization, and allows for alone time and “doing nothing”. We have our own outdoor play area for nice days, along with stories, arts, games and a healthy snack provided in the afternoons. A home-like environment is the goal, filled with patience and love.
The San Geronimo Valley Day Care Center has gone through some changes in the last year:
Zoila Berardi has retired and left the day care center in the hands of the Community Center. The program will continue to be called Zoila’s, as it has come to be known by all of us and we are so happy that Zoila will continue to be a part of the program throughout the week.
Zoila’s is now in Room 2 on the upper campus. Zoila’s serves children in kindergarten through 3rd grade and as always, our staff will escort all kindergarteners from both Montessori and Open Classroom to Zoila’s each day at noon.
Children in 1st through 3rd grade will either walk to Zoila’s in room 2 if they are arriving from Open Classroom, or by bus from the lower campus.
