SJB Child Development Centers exist because we believe that all children in this community, regardless of their economic status, deserve to be invested in by dedicated, skilled professionals in a warm environment that educates, engages and inspires.
For over 40 years it has been SJB’s privilege to prepare children and families for brighter and more prosperous futures with innovative services transcending traditional child care. By providing children with the care and education they deserve and parents with access to the resources they need, we are working together to create a vibrant, thriving community.
Mission: The mission of SJB Child Development Centers is to provide educational child development services for children 0-12 years of age to strengthen and support the families throughout Santa Clara County.
Our mission stems from the vision of one of our organization’s founders, Mr. Bill Williams. He had a desire to help parents establish financial independence by creating a safe place where they could bring their children while they worked. He also set out to break the cycle of poverty by offering education-based child care so that the children at the center would have access to the same opportunities as those from more affluent families. San Juan Bautista Child Development Center was established with these goals in mind and quickly made a name for itself by being the first in Santa Clara County to offer toddler care and before and after school care.
SJB empowers and supports very low to moderate income children and families who are served through 10 sites and multiple programs, all working to uphold Mr. Bill Williams’ vision of empowering the children and families of Santa Clara County. Our agency is co-creating college grads, responsible community members, entrepreneurs, politicians, educators and future thought leaders. We are creating the future of Silicon Valley!
SJB’s compassionate, skilled and licensed professionals strive to nurture not only the child, but the whole family as well. We offer Federal and State services as well as research and theory based curriculum and developmental evaluations that focus on the needs of each child. Through independent interactions with peers, stimulating and challenging environments, and teacher facilitated learning opportunities, children are able to develop social skills, academic confidence and creative ability.
Children who come to SJB thrive in our safe and developmentally rich environments. Parents who entrust their children to us have invaluable peace of mind, because they know the level of care we provide. SJB staff’s dedication is unparalleled, due to one basic principal; the children and families are worth it.
