Caring for and Educating East Bay’s Young Children Since 1976 

STEM - SCIENCE/MATH/TECHNOLOGY Children explore science, math, and technology through hands-on activities. PROJECT WEBS Children explore many topics such as What can we build? and What can we learn about families? LANGUAGE AND LITERACY Children learn printing concepts through "Handwriting without Tears". CREATIVITY Creativity happens all day, such as Found Art projects, Dramatic Play, Painting, Music & Movement. CARING TEACHERS Our teachers care about children’s interests and individual needs. LIFE SKILLS Children learn "life skills" such as helping each other and being responsible. MAKING FRIENDS Learning how to make friends and participating in “conflict resolution” help children’s future relationships.
