Drop In’s

Additional drop in days are available only for current part-time families who need occasional care on additional days, and is charged at a daily rate, based on availability. Drop in care may also be available to alumni siblings of currently enrolled children, and to our graduated kinder kids, on school breaks/holidays during their kinder year. Unfortunately we are not able to offer drop in care to the general public, nor any longer to families who have left our program (except for siblings & alumni kinder kids)

Drop In Rates – up to 9.5 hrs:
Kinder Kids (visiting alumni)    $75/day
Preschoolers                                 $85/day
Toddlers 18 – 30 mths                  $95/day
Babies 3-17 months                     $105/day

To finalize your enrollment, a deposit of $2,000 for full time or $1,250 for part-time is required. The deposit will be applied to your last 60 days of tuition (after you have given notice). Families who have siblings enrolled at the same time receive a 10% discount on the oldest child’s tuition, families with more then two children enrolled receive an additional 5% discount (Youngest child full tuition, middle children 5% discount, oldest child 10% discount – while siblings are attending together).

Tuition for continuing families is set the spring of each fiscal year (July-June) and is billed monthly, due on the 25th of the month preceding care.  There is a one-time, initial Enrollment fee of $425/child (only first year), and an annual $250 Supply, Equipment & Materials fee, which is due September 1st each year.

Our Waitlist

Like most quality Bay Area childcare programs, St. John’s Childcare generally has a long waitlist.

Please call us  at 510-549-9342, email stjohnit@gmail.com, or fill out the contact form below. to schedule a tour for a current opening. Tours are only available for current openings, as we receive too many requests to offer them to everyone. Tours are generally scheduled to start between 9:30 & 11, or between 2:30 and 4:30 and usually take about 30-45 minutes to complete. If you are trying to schedule  a tour for a current opening,  it is helpful if you include in your contact form or email  some days and times that would work for you.

We regret that we are unable to give tours unless there is a space available, as the tour process is disruptive for the children currently enrolled, especially the babies & toddlers.If you are interested in enrolling at a later date,   and are interested in being contacted for a tour when a space becomes available,  please email us at  stjohnit@gmail.com .

Be sure to include the following:

  • your name
  • your contact number
  • your address
  • your child’s birthdate
  • when you need care to begin
  • are you looking for full time or part time (how many days & which days you would prefer, if possible)

If a space that matches your needs becomes available, we will contact you to arrange a tour and answer any questions.

Admission Priorities

Enrollment priority is given to younger siblings of children already in attendance and families who attend St. John’s Presbyterian Church.  Other applicants are offered admission in the order they are received, balancing for age and sex of the child.  We project enrollment 4-9 months in advance, and offer spaces with as much notice as possible.

We will call you if we have a space for your child. If your address, phone number, email, anticipated start date – or baby’s birthdate change — please be sure to let us know.
