Our HighScope research-based curriculum reflects the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAYEC) with:
Low teacher-child ratios
Carefully planned classroom environments
Age-appropriate programs for each group
Well-trained, nurturing teachers
The Child Day Schools is located in the East Bay: Antioch, Lafayette, Moraga, Pleasanton, & San Ramon.
Each campus is unique and is geared to the needs of the community it serves.
