Greetings BANANAS families, providers and friends,

 

BANANAS will be closed for business at least until May 1st in accordance with the Bay Area wide shelter-in-place order.

 

Family recertifications and eligibility will not be jeopardized during this emergency. Our wonderful providers that support our families using subsidies will be paid as scheduled. If there is a problem with your reimbursement, please email AP@bananasbunch.org and we will respond as soon as we can.

 

Thank you in advance for your patience. Please stay safe and visit our website and social media for updates.

BANANAS mission is to partner with families and child care providers to raise happy, confident children. We offer child care referrals and resources to families with young children and child care professionals in the Northern Alameda County cities of Oakland, Berkeley, Albany, Piedmont, Emeryville, and Alameda. If you need assistance with paying for child care, call us to see if you qualify for a subsidy program.

We welcome families and child care providers to sign up for our parent education classes, professional development trainings, and playgroups held here at BANANAS and out in the community. Sign up for sessions under Workshops & Trainings.
