Once upon a time…

bus1Stone Soup is taken from the Napoleonic children’s tale about three starving soldiers who convince a village to pool their scarce resources to make soup. The soldiers contribute a pot and a stone. Each villager contributes a food item to make the soup. The results of this collaboration were enjoyed by everyone.

Nationally recognized as a pioneer in the child care field, Stone Soup Child Care Programs partners with low-moderate income school districts, cities and public and private enterprise to provide quality, affordable child care in California communities.

“The Stone Soup Child Care Program is believed to be the first
child care program at a public school in Los Angeles County.”
- Los Angeles Times, December 21, 1986
