Sheldon Acres Child Development Center is the leading childcare provider in Elk Grove.

These stories have been the driving force behind our services for over 30 years. We invite you to examine five reasons why Sheldon Acres Child Development Center in Elk Grove is the right choice for your child in our blog below, or contact us today to schedule a walk-through of our facilities and meet our team of educators.

Our Philosophy

From our staff to our facility to our child-focused curriculum, Sheldon Acres is unlike any other childcare center in Elk Grove. Our skilled and professional teachers, administrators, and support staff all know the importance of every interaction and opportunity for your child to grow. We emphasize building quality relationships that empower children to explore new ideas, situations, and concepts with confidence and curiosity. Whether exploring our two-acre grounds and gardening or practicing handwriting, math fundamentals, or verbal language skills, your child will feel welcome and encouraged by the Sheldon Acres Child Care Development Center family.

Our Preschool Programs

Successful, early childhood education is crucial to your child’s progress and happiness in their later years of schooling. By building confidence and a love of learning at a young age, your pride and joy will gain the foundation necessary for academic achievement, positive social interactions, and problem-solving that will serve them for the rest of their life. Designed for children from age 2 – 4, our preschool program (or Penguin Program as we call it) provides instruction and support for all your child’s needs. From potty training to science-based activities, our morning only or full-day preschool program will set your child up for long-term success.

Preparedness For Kindergarten

Our Kinder Readiness Program is where our “Dolphins” work and grow to get ready for their first year of more traditional education. Focusing on phonics and phonemic awareness that your child will see in their first year of kindergarten in the Elk Grove area, we use group activities and fun guided practice to help students with the fundamentals they need to smoothly transition from our daycare program. With songs, stories, dance, and dramatic play throughout the day, we make sure your child learns while having fun and expressing idea and emotions, too.

Before & After School Programs

Our before and after school program has been recognized by the Elk Grove community as one of the best around. We are committed to providing a safe and structured environment for your child before and after school with snacks, homework support, and guided reasoning-based and kinesthetic activities for children age K – 6th. Our childcare facility even offers a bus pickup and dropoff point for Pleasant Grove Elementary School for extra convenience.

Parent’s Night Out

As parents, you do so much for your child every day. It’s important to honor your hard work and take a night for yourself from time to time. Sheldon Acres understands that parents need time too, so we offer monthly parent date nights for you to drop the kids (age infant to 12) off at while you enjoy some much deserved time for you. Enjoy your date night fully with the confidence that your child is in great hands and having fun at the Sheldon Acres Child Development Center.
