Expanding Capacity at Bayview

Toddler Room at Bayview
Toddler Room at Bayview

FACES SF has added a new toddler room at our Bayview site. The new room, funded by the City of San Francisco, adds eight slots for toddlers at our Bayview child development center.  Renovations involved adding a toddler bathroom to an existing preschool room, as well as re-painting.

The addition of toddler slots at Bayview  “really provides our families with a broader scope of services,” says Kim Wong, Director of  the Preschool and After School programs.  “Because of this change we can now serve children from one and a half  to 12 years old right under the same roof.  It’s a great thing for the children because they’ll have continuity of care through their formative years.”

With the addition of a toddler room at Bayview,  additional teacher training becomes necessary. To that end, the PITC (Program for Infant Toddler Care) will start training new toddler teachers, as well as existing teachers, some time in March.

“We tend to think that anybody can work with toddlers,” says Wong, “but that’s not true. Toddlers are at a different stage of life and are a specialized field. For the teachers, the new training gives them a chance to work with toddlers and teaches them how to work with their parents.”
