Which age groups do you serve?


We serve children from 2-6 years old, in preschool (2's, and mixed 3's and 4's) and TK classrooms.


How many children will be in the program total?


Class sizes vary from classroom to classroom and are determined by Community Care Licensing, which has licensed us for a total of 117 children. We will grow to 5 classrooms eventually. We also have a gross motor room and an art & sensory room as breakout rooms for small groups of children to do activities with their teachers.

1 teacher to every 6-8 children

We are open from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm Monday-Friday.


What are the scheduling options?


5 full days a week to best accommodate working parents. We do not currently offer part-time schedules.  


What is the holiday/break schedule?


We close for about 2 weeks around the winter holidays, a week for Spring Break (same as SFUSD), and several days in August for staff development.

What are the monthly fees?


For toilet-trained children: $2200 per month. For children who are in diapers: $2300 per month This is for attendance 5 days a week 8:00 am - 6:00 pm. We offer a 10% discount for siblings concurrently enrolled. Our tuition will go up 3% for the 2019-2020 school year.


Are meals provided?


Parents provide lunch, and we provide organic, vegetarian morning and afternoon snacks.


Do you offer toilet training?


We work with children and parents to toilet train children once they show consistent signs of readiness. We do not push children to get trained by a certain age, knowing that all children develop differently. With consistency and support, they will achieve this milestone when they are ready - body and mind. We provide diapers and wipes for children as long as they need them.
