Stanford's first formal child care program opened in 1970 at the old Stanford Elementary School on Mayfield and Santa Ynez.

They wished to provide a high-quality educational experience to all children as a way to honor the memory of their own child, whom they lost at a young age.
Today Stanford is recognized as a leader in delivering effective and high-quality programs in support of all aspects of employees' work and life, including innovative and generous financial assistance programs for child care and adoption.
