Zoila’s Childcare Center
Named after the matriarch of the Valley, Zoila Berardi, Zoila’s Childcare Center is a licensed childcare facility for TK-3rd graders. The Van drops students off right in front of the facility and students are met by a staff person at the door. Zoila’s offers fun, engaging, and supervised childcare that builds upon age-appropriate learning and child development. Healthy snacks are provided every day.
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. Zoila Berardi served as director of the program for the last 40 years and locals know it simply as “Zoila’s.”
The Day Care staff emphasizes a playful and loving atmosphere. Activities include outdoor play, stories, arts, and games. A healthy snack provided in the afternoons. A home-like environment is the goal, filled with patience and love.
Zoila’s is now in Room 2 on the Lagunitas School 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 every 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.
