This first-in-the-nation childcare center customized to meet the needs of police officers with extended hours and affordable rates is set to open in 2023.
The initiative is funded for three years and includes a $3 million investment from State-awarded grant funds, with additional philanthropic support from KinderCare and the Cushman Foundation’s Making a Difference for San Diego grant program.
Recognizing the challenges law enforcement personnel face when balancing raising a family with nontraditional schedules, the program will offer extended operations from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and allow for emergency callout services to the employee’s home. The program will serve children ages 5 and under.
