Step Up Ventura’s mission is to promote family stability and school success by providing accessible therapeutic childcare and preschool to homeless children ages zero to five.
We helps infants, toddlers, and young children develop secure attachments and overcome the traumas they have faced.
Our program offers nurturing, calming, and appropriately stimulating activities throughout the day with specially trained early childhood educators, caregivers, and mental health workers.
Step Up Ventura requires parent involvement. Parents learn to understand and care for their children with interventions specifically targeted to early childhood brain development and healthy parent-child attachments.
