B. J. Jordan Childcare Programs, Inc. DBA Beanstalk is a private non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation.  The agency was originally founded in 1973 as a pilot project under the Foundation of California State University, Sacramento.  At that time the name of the agency was Community Childcare Programs, which became incorporated in 1977.  The original purpose of the agency was to provide childcare and nutrition programs, in centers and 'satellite' homes, for families who had limited financial resources.  In 1996, as a tribute to the founder and respected advocate for children and families, Betty Jane (B.J.) Jordan, the Board of Directors voted to change the corporate name to B. J. Jordan Childcare Programs, Inc.  As the focus of the agency changed to reflect community needs, our purpose expanded to include providing high quality childcare and development and nutrition programs for all families.  Tuition assistance and free programs along with the Childcare Food Program are provided under the B. J. Jordan Childcare Programs, Inc. corporate name.  In 2001, continued growth in programs lead to a 'doing business as' name that portrayed the 'magic' that is now known as Beanstalk.  The Name Beanstalk represents B. J. Jordan Childcare Programs, Inc. vision of Helping Families Grow Healthy Children.


Beanstalk’s mission is to provide children and families with high quality care, education and nutrition programs, in centers and family child care homes that are safe, affordable, culturally and linguistically responsive.
