Frequently Asked Questions

Why did we name our child care Sweet Peas?

When my daughter was born my mom sang the 1960’s Sweet Pea song, “Oh, Sweet Pea” by Tommy Roe. The song made my daughter smile and laugh every time. So I thought it would be a nice connection to our child care beginning.

What do I need to bring for my child each day?

Each child needs to come with diapers as applicable, wipes, change of clothing, a blanket/sheet or sleeping bag for nap time. The blanket/sheet or sleeping bag will be sent home Friday weekly for a wash. We will supply a crib/mat for each child at nap time. A favorite plush or toy is always nice for comfort or sharing.

Where will my child be in case of an emergency?

We will remain located at Sweet Peas daycare/preschool. Unless, we are instructed otherwise. Our evacuation location will be McKenzie Park off of Los Positas.

When is my tuition due?

Tuition is requested to be paid at the beginning of each month.

What if my child is feeling sick?
