Support Services

Our Foothills Cal-SAFE staff is committed to providing a nurturing and caring learning environment for young parents while completing their high school education. Students learn to make healthy living choices and learn successful parenting techniques. Child care is provided at our Foothills site and serves all teen parents and their children in the district.

The Support Services component of the Cal-SAFE program is designed to enable students to continue or complete their education, secure gainful employment, and develop skills needed to provide a safe and caring environment for themselves and their children. The support services include:

Childcare centers that provide hands-on supervised experiences in caring for babies/toddlers

Parenting classes to reinforce positive parenting techniques
