Childcare & Respite Care

The purpose of Ivey Ranch Day Care and Respite Care is to provide daycare/respite with supervision, guidance, love and instruction for children of working and non-working parents alike. Our primary concern is to provide a program rich in experiences which will benefit the children, parents and the community.

Ivey Ranch is open to all children and is especially designed to meet the needs of the disabled, regardless of race, nationality or creed. It is the desire of the center to offer a mainstreamed program to benefit the child with special needs. We accept children with special needs ages 5 through 21 years of age. In order to meet all of your needs we offer after-school care, full-time summer and school holiday care.

In-home Respite Care
We view respite as temporary relief for family caregivers. It’s a service in which care is provided to individuals with disabilities or special needs. We see respite care as a vital part of the continuum of services for families. Respite care reduces family stress, supports family stability, prevents abuse and neglect, and minimizes the need for out-of-home placement. It provides caregivers an opportunity to take care of other kinds of business or the opportunity to relax and take a break from the high demands of full-time care giving to special needs individuals. Ivey Ranch can provide in-home respite care to those who have contractual services through the San Diego Regional Center.
