Emmett is lucky enough to go to a great school, but it is unaffordable to many families.  Childcare is expensive! Therefore, the parent community is trying to help by asking our friends and family to donate to this great organization.  Please read more below or... just give. Every bit counts!

Peace Love and SOUL




Did you know a lot of words when you were little?  If the adults in your life talked to you a lot, you probably knew thousands more words than children who weren’t so lucky.

Do you remember what it was like when you started kindergarten?  Long before you could read, you were figuring things out for yourself and getting ready to learn.

Early learning and development is so important for children - by the time a child is 4 years old, 85% of her brain structure is already developed. 

If a child has a chance to learn EARLY, that child has a better start in life.  And a better start for every child means a better outcome for all of us. 

At Blue Skies, we give kids a better start.

We’re the only NAEYC accredited early learning and development center in Oakland, and one of only 6% of centers that provide infant care. Working families depend on us for full-time year-round care from infancy to kindergarten.

BlueSkies provides the highest quality of care & makes it accessible to working families by providing scholarship assistance. But we need to do more, and we need your help!

Our goal is to help one in five of our children with scholarship support, but we can’t do it without your help.

Will you help us provide an affordable, safe, loving, and stimulating environment for children who deserve a good start in life?

We would love to have you visit us to see how we’re making a difference and learn more about how you can make a difference, too.  Call for an appointment or make a virtual visit at

Thank you so much!
