Sending your child to preschool has many benefits for their personal and educational development.
It’s no secret that the Bay Area economy seems to be thriving. But behind the scenes working families are struggling.
Did you know that according to a recent study, over the past four years, childcare costs in the Bay Area have increased by 40 percent?
Although the North California region is home to a higher than average percentage of educated residents, a diverse employer base and robust startups, not everything is as it seems.
Inadequate housing production is a huge concern for young families, as are the worsening traffic problems and resulting pollution.
Rising costs don’t seem to be dampening daycare demand however. A 2017 study found that only 23 percent of children of children in California who needed childcare had a place available.
Preschools are a fantastic environment for your child to learn and we know firsthand how beneficial preschool education can be for children from all backgrounds.
It’s why we offer a variety of flexible and age appropriate options to suit the needs of your family.

1. Preschool Helps Your Child Establish a Daily Routine:
Young children love routines.
Studies show that a day filled with stimulating activities is an exciting way for your child to learn valuable life lessons and develop important social skills.
By establishing clear times of the day at preschool, with structured slots for eating, playing and napping, a child’s behavior can be tamed and shaped.
