Arborland PK-6 Montessori Children's Academy 
"It is our belief that each child is a unique individual with his own special needs and background, and should be recognized as someone special. In order for the child to grow and learn, he must first feel safe, accepted, and competent in an environment that is encouraging, nurturing, supportive and challenging. Our Goals and Objectives Our main objective is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help the child develop within himself the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. Our goals for the child are: to develop a positive attitude toward school and learning. to develop a sense of high self-esteem. to establish a habit of concentration for lifelong study skills. to develop and foster curiosity. to acquire the basic skills necessary for a lifetime of learning. to develop habits of initiative and persistence. to foster inner discipline and a sense of order. to develop socially acceptable behavior. to develop the child's innate, ultimate potential through high self-expectation."  Fullerton
Berkeley Private PK-6 School 
"Berkeley is a small, non-sectarian private school. Our basic premise is that a comfortable, structured atmosphere, in which the child is valued and respected as an individual, is essential to a successful learning experience. Our goals for each student include not only the acquisition of strong basic academic skills, but a firm self-image, independent study habits, and a sense of responsibility. We recognize that by the time a child comes to school, his/her education is already in progress, no matter what the age of the child. The parents have been the child's first teachers, and will continue to be the most influential force in the child's life. It is the responsibility of our school to help the child to integrate his/her new learning experiences in the school environment with the values that are of importance to the child's family."  Fullerton
Boys & Girls Club of Garden Grove 
"The Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove have been providing positive places for children to go during non-school hours, particularly when there is no adult at home, since 1956 --- long before the word 'latchkey' became a part of our vocabulary! As a leader in programs for youth, we were among the very first to extend our hours and days of service to directly accommodate working parents. We were also among the first to provide transportation to and from schools on a day-to-day basis. Currently, we administer five school-age centers year-round: Boys and Girls Club, Edgar Branch, Stanford Branch, Patton Branch, and Clinton Branch. These sites serve more than 1,200 boys and girls (5 -17 years old) every day, from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. During the summer and school holidays, most children are with us at least 9 hours each day. Evening and weekend activities are provided for teens. Our Family Campus, provides licensed toddler and preschool childcare and school readiness for more than 112 children daily, as well as enrichment programs, computer center and a Family Resource Library. Families can also come to us when they are in crisis, through our Family and Youth Outreach services located at Garden Groveís Juvenile Justice Center and the Truancy Reduction Center at Hare High School. These programs are designed to accommodate the special needs of our community, offering a referral program, truancy reduction services, parent education classes, family support, juvenile offender education, drug education, and individual and family counseling."  Garden Grove, Santa Ana
