Deanna Weigold, M.S., Director
The SOPA Kids’ Center provides on-site childcare for students of Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter. In addition to operating an after school program (September-June), we operate a full day camp schedule for winter, spring, and summer breaks. Our licensed daycare program is owned by the Sherman Oaks Parents Association.
We strive to create an environment that respects the child and encourages the child to participate. Every child is valuable and entitled to be nurtured, to be encouraged, to be imaginative and to explore the world around them in a positive, playful, and safe environment.
The SOPA Kids’ Center is conducted and planned by qualified staff, educated to meet the needs of children from different age groups. The counselors are skilled in positive, proactive discipline techniques. The entire staff is trained to be responsive, supportive, and offer guidance to the children in compliance with Community Care Licensing, Title 22 standards. We maintain a ratio of 1 adult to every 14 children.
Children learn best when given choices to pursue areas of personal interest. We stress positive, fun education enrichment to expand and develop every child’s potential.
The Kids’ Center program includes supervised sport and outside game activities, table manipulatives, a quiet homework time, and a healthy snack. The Center utilizes classrooms, the school library, cafeteria and the main play yard for the program. There will be something exciting for every child, everyday!
Most importantly we want to keep it fun!
