Family Child Education Homepage

  • The Family Child Education (FCE) office is located on the Educational Options campus. This department provides programs for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, including before and after-school enrichment programs, onsite at elementary school campuses throughout the district.

    Family Child Education (FCE) is a department of Santa Clara Unified School District that has been proudly serving children and families since 1968. All families deserve access to quality early education and supportive services that will promote children's healthy development and future success. FCE is dedicated to creating positive change, taking an active role in early education issues at the local, county, and statewide levels to support children, parents, and early education providers.

    Our Purpose

    FCE is dedicated to excellence for all children by providing a safe and healthy learning environment based on developmentally appropriate practices. Our programs respect family diversity, uniqueness, foster self-esteem and personal growth for students, families, and staff. 

    The purpose of the programs is to provide an environment in which children can thrive, offering "hands-on," researched-based curriculum where children can learn through activity and play; grow at their own pace, and ensure children attend school eager and excited to learn.
