In June 2019, SMUD entered into a multi-party agreement with Sacramento State and UC Davis Health to provide quality child development services to its employees at reasonable rates.  Goals of the agreement are to:

  • Provide this benefit to the partners’ employees to attract and retain talent.

  • Fill unmet child care needs in the East Sacramento area.

  • Ensure the continuity of care and a positive transition for current Lighthouse families, operator and staff.

SMUD is the lead organization coordinating the design/build efforts with University Enterprises, Inc. and administering the operator contract on behalf of the three parties.
