In the Bay Area, the scarcity and high expense of childcare has posed a significant challenge to families already struggling with the cost of living. One provider, Burlingame-based Palcare Childcare, has been making a difference since the early 1990s. Palcare offers childcare programs with flexible scheduling—not only during the day but also well into the evening—for families of children ranging from three months to five years old.
Palcare Daycare Center is an expansion to the existing campus of the Palcare Childcare, a 501(c)(3) non-profit located in Burlingame, CA. The renovation of a mid-century appliance showroom across the street from the current facility utilizes an open floor plan to create a series of classrooms partitioned with low walls, providing staff with a view of all the spaces at once.
