Licensing

The Center is licensed by Community Care Licensing, a state agency through the Department of Social Services, to provide care to children 6 weeks through 12 years of age.

In conjunction with the USDA and the California Department of Education Nutrition Services Department, Maryvale participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Meals are planned in accordance with the appropriate meal pattern for your child's age group. The meals provided, including breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack, are varied and nourishing and included in the cost of tuition.

Tuition Assistance

Maryvale is well aware that for some families the tuition rates can be prohibitive – often for the very families who need the program the most. For this reason, in accordance with the Daughters of Charity’s Values of Compassionate Service and Advocacy for the Poor, Maryvale has established a Tuition Assistance program, a private scholarship program.

If you need assistance in paying tuition we strongly encourage you to apply for our Tuition Assistance Program. All families will be asked to submit an application and supporting documents to the Early Childhood Education Bookkeeper for consideration.
