60 Years of Experience
Located in Belmont, CA, and founded in 1961, we are a community of children, parents, and teachers working together with the common goal of stronger, healthier families.
We believe that the well-being of children, their senses of self, their values and their perspectives on the world are all greatly shaped by those charged with their care.

Our children’s program is designed to provide a gradual and smooth transition into formal education. When children learn at their own pace through guided exploration and experimentation, in a safe and loving environment, full of developmentally appropriate activities, their discoveries are boundless.
Open-ended exploration allows children time and space to develop skills by playing, tinkering, practicing, experiencing both success and failure, and reflecting on their own thinking.
