Escuela Popular Childcare Academy’s mission is to stimulate the different areas of a child’s development. Its curriculum was inspired by Waldorf’s pedagogy, which uses teaching methods that seek to build a balance between the children’s intellect, imagination, and will. Waldorf’s pedagogy focuses in using art and nature to help the growth of human development. The purpose is to prepare children to reach maturity in various aspects such as, laterality, balance, coordinated movement, language, emotional stability and the ability to listen to better prepare them for the academic challenges that will come in the following stages of their lives.


Based on a deep knowledge of each child’s needs and Waldorf inspired curriculum, Escuela Popular Childcare Academy welcome each child with respect, individuality, and provide a homely atmosphere conducive to their development. As a result of this educational approach we help develop adults who are self-confident, respectful, creative, full of initiative, social sensitivity, stable emotional life, and completely capable of making new contributions to society.

About Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley

Founded in 1944, BGCSV is a non-profit youth development organization that offers innovative and effective afterschool and summer enrichment programs primarily for low income, at-risk Santa Clara County youth ages 6-18 years. BGCSV serves approximately 3,000 regular members at 13 Clubhouse locations in San Jose, Morgan Hill, and Gilroy. The majority of the youth we serve are living in economically depressed, high crime neighborhoods with an absence of adult role models or mentors. 

Escuela Popular After School Program

Silicon Valley’s future prosperity is dependent upon growing a middle-class workforce ready to meet the global demands of a knowledge-based economy. We know that the path to building our future workforce is preparing local youth with the skills required to succeed in college and a career. We aim to help close the opportunity gap to achieve greater economic, political, and social equality among disadvantaged youth and the communities in which they live.

BGCSV takes a holistic approach to creating well-rounded, confident, and healthy youth and aims to provide programs and services that speak to all aspects of a child’s development. To achieve these goals, comprehensive curricula are provided within the following Core Enrichment Program Areas that address the academic, linguistic and cognitive growth, and emotional and social needs of youth. Core Program Areas are age and developmentally appropriate; are supportive of the diversity of children and families served, including culture and language; and are operationally efficient and effective.
