State Childcare

Looking for childcare?

Plaza's State Child Care program offers high-quality childcare throughout the East Los Angeles area that services children from 6 weeks to five-years-old.  Each of our center locations has a qualified teaching staff, healthy snacks, and lunches, and flexible hours to accommodate families' needs.

Another great care option is our Family Child Care Home Educational Network (FCCHEN) that serves over 300 children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age throughout East Los Angeles and neighboring cities. The days and hours of operation of our home network are determined at each home and may differ.


Activities for the children in our center-based programs are based on Imagine-It and Core Knowledge, both of which are research-based curriculums. The teachers offer activities that promote and support learning and cognitive, language, social, emotional and physical development. The program provides:

  • A balance of indoor and outdoor activities each day.

  • All children are encouraged to participate in all activities.

  • A balance of teacher-initiated and child-initiated activities.

Sites and Family Child Care Homes

Children are assessed based on the Desired Results Developmental Profile. Children are assessed within 60 days of enrollment in the program and every six months thereafter. In addition, we utilize the Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale/Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale and a parent survey to evaluate the program to assist in making program modifications to improve the quality and delivery of services.
