Keep LearningEdge Open - Garfield Park Waiver in lieu of limited Playground Space
We, the undersigned, and parent/guardian of a child attending LearningEdge Education Center, petition California Department of Social Servics – Community Care Licensing Division to keep LearningEdge Education Center open during the Licensing Process. We further petition that a waiver be granted to LearningEdge to take my child/children to the park in lieu of playground space on the premises.
LearningEdge has been open in South Pasadena since 2000 and provide an invaluable service to South Pasadena families. Unlike other afterschool programs, they not only provide care and homework-help for my child, but also provide tutoring and educational enrichment services.
We are aware that LearningEdge has done business as a tutoring center previously and is now required to be licensed as a school-age child care center.
If LearningEdge is forced to close, many families will be displaced without the type of care that LearningEdge has offered for 19 years.
