We strive to instill in our children good moral character.  We begin by teaching the morals and values Jesus would want us to have.


Our children learn to love each other, share with each other, take care of each other and value the importance of working with each other to do their best in what they do.


We are eager to build self-esteem in our children by offering them stability, love, structure, and the ability to succeed in their school work, projects, and play.

Holy Spirit of Hope Day Care & Learning Center is located in the lower valley at 7728 Alameda Ave.  (The corner of Alameda Ave. and Easter, right before Rosedale).  The school is located behind the church.  All of our staff is CPR and First Aide certified, as well as CDA credentials.  We accept CCS, Project ARRIBA Participants, and offer military discounts.


We are owned and operated by Holy Spirit of Hope Catholic Charismatic Church, with Martha Ortega serving as our director, and operate our Day School through Holy Spirit of Hope's Homeschool Ministry.  We use English as our primary language; however our staff is bi-lingual in English and Spanish.


Each class room holds no more than state child care guidelines; with each group having their own instructor/caregiver.  We teach Christian values by praying before each meal, sing Christian songs, say our morning prayer, and teach children to love and respect themselves as well as each other.  Pastor Robert visits us daily in the morning and afternoon and always brings smiles and happiness to all the children.  We also teach patriotism by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning.


If your child will be taking a nap, parents are asked to bring blankets and pillows for their children every Monday (or the beginning of the week).

INFANT CARE: (Ages: newborn - 18 months)


Our children are given lots of love and nurturing during these young years.  They are taught simple early motor skills such as walking, sitting, and standing.  Tummy time is also given during awake time.  We play patty cake, sing nursing rhyme songs, play simple puzzles & games, and read to the children.  Each child naps in his or her own playpen or crib.  Our caregiver provides daily infant reports for each parent.  These reports contain information on how & when they eat, the amount they ate, diaper reports, and general mood and health, as well as all activities they participate in.  There is also a SIDS prevention nap check list reported daily that records the status of how each child is sleeping.



TODDLER CLASS: (Ages: 18 months - 2 years old)


We encourage and help with potty training during this stage.  Children play, sing, dance, do puzzles, arts & crafts, and are read to every day.  Healthy dry snacks are provided by the instructor (morning only); however, parents are welcomed to bring snacks to give to the children.  At this age, children learn how to sit together and work together as a group and how to work well with others.  Centers are used daily to continue in developing their everyday skills.




AFTER SCHOOL CARE: (Ages: 5 years old - 13 years old)


We offer transportation for after school children in neighboring areas.  There is a weekly charge for these services that is in addition to the weekly day care fee.  Children have their own caregiver whom provides activities, help with homework, and other daily requirements.
