Where family and workplace come together

The Gluck Child Care Center was established in 1993 to provide child care services to the employees of Scripps Health and The Scripps Research Institute.


The center serves children ages 3 months to 6 years of age in eight age-appropriate classrooms. The hours are 6:45 am - 6:15 pm The program is staffed by fully-qualified, accomplished teachers. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to visit. Our philosophy of education is to provide an integrated curriculum in which imagination and self-expression flourish.


The children’s daily experiences include:


  • Creative arts
  • Music and movement
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Science
  • Language and literacy development
  • Social interactions with peers


The center is licensed by the State of California, Community Care Licensing (license nos. 372006511,12).

Waiting pool

Often, more families would like to enroll in The Maxwell H. and Muriel Gluck Child Care Center (a non-profit corporation) than we can accommodate. For interested families who cannot yet enroll, we maintain a “waiting pool.” When a space becomes available at our child care facility, we use the waiting pool to determine who will be offered the available opening.


This process can be complicated. The waiting pool is carefully maintained to include those who are actively seeking placement in the center. Therefore, it is important that all concerned know and understand the waiting pool policies and procedures.
