Child Care for kids on the Spectrum

Hi! I'm new to the NorCal area and I am need to look for work. However, It has been rough finding a child care in Placer County that has experience with children on the spectrum. I have joined a lot of groups and have been directed to a few links for a child care provider but I haven't been too successful. Does anyone have a child care they send their children to?

Pivotal Response Training

My son is 2.5yrs with ASD, and has been getting abt 10-15hrs of ABA for 6months. He has made incredible improvements- uses words when prompted and more interested in others.

Does anyone have any experience with the La Mesa/Spring Valley Preschool program for autistic children?

I heard that the La Mesa/Spring Valley elementary school district has a special Ed. preschool program specifically for autism. Does anybody have any details about this? We're currently in the Chula Vista elementary school district and are extremely underwhelmed so we're considering moving into the La Mesa school district.
