Description: We are a private, nonprofit child care center serving children from all backgrounds, incomes and abilities—a wonderful "melting pot" where everyone learns together, and from each other. Our NAEYC-accredited preschool program places us in the top 7% of child care in the country. Each day, we nurture and educate nearly 200 students, ages 6 weeks to 5 years, at two locations. We're also unique in that we offer the Peninsula's only sliding-scale tuition rate, where families pay based on income and need.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My own experience has been a nightmare that would hunt me for the rest of my life. This daycare abused my child and no one will come forward. Whoever did it, please come forward! My son is 18 months and no one seems to know anything. He's more emotional now and always wants me to hold him. This childcare provider did not protect my child and now he is tormented. I trusted these people because my daughter went here as a child and I never had an issue. The truth will come out. It always does.

I absolutely love this center!! My daughter has gone there since she was 6 weeks old, she's now 4 and I don't want her to ever leave! The admin staff is kind and extremely helpful and the teachers are phenomenal! The staff members are approachable and genuinely care about the children. The teachings are age appropriate and the teachers are always keeping the parents informed so that we can re-enforce the lessons at home. If this center had grades K-12, my daughter would be there!!!!
