As a family child care, we operate a smaller program and therefore we can enroll children year-round as spaces become available. We are licensed for 14 kids (to be exact: four kids under 2 years (“infants and toddlers”), eight kids between 2 and 5 years; and 2 school-age kids). When a younger child turns two, we are usually able to enroll a new infant or toddler.

We offer first priority to currently enrolled families and their siblings. Then we work through our newly-established wait-pool. We encourage you to come by for a tour and decide whether you want to join our wait pool to expand your range of options.

Sign Up for a Tour!

Offered by appointment on Wednesdays and Fridays, 1:30-2:30 p.m., and at other times by request. Due to COVID, only one parent is allowed at a time. Upon completion of the tour, you may apply to join our waiting list.

Tuition Rates for Full-Time Child Care

$525/week for infants (3 months – 2 years), $450/week for ages 2-5.


Meet our Director, Patricia Kennedy

Paty Kennedy, director

Thank you for visiting Kennedy Family Child Care. We are a Spanish immersion play-based family child care provider serving Santa Monica and the Westside of Los Angeles since 2006. 

Families that come to us are looking for a child care setting that allows their kid to make themselves feel at home. Our home is designed specifically to give children plenty of safe and interesting places to explore during the day. 

I have two daughters, including a preschool-aged child who has been a terrific friend and playmate for our currently enrolled families.

Check out our Yelp reviews (thank you past and current parents!). I invite you to tour my home and my program.
