About US

We are a licensed Infant-Toddler center in Lafayette, CA, providing full time childcare for children between 0-24 months of age. We have been a part of the Lamorinda community for over 30 years and pride ourselves in providing quality childcare from a loving and highly dedicated staff.


We believe each child grows and develops in a sequential manner at their own pace. Quality childcare means meeting the needs of the total child - socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. 


We base our program on a follow the child philosophy. Children learn by interacting with, observing, and experiencing the world of objects and people. Our committed and long standing teachers are compassionate and nurturing individuals who treat each child with respect, celebrating each child's uniqueness.


We are BIG people helping little people to be BIG themselves one day.


We Believe...

  • Each child is curious and actively initiates his or her own learning. The child constructs the most meaningful and lasting knowledge. 
  • A child's self esteem is based on pride in his or her culture, appreciation of his or her feelings, celebration of his or her uniqueness, and experience with success. 
  • The child's family is the primary influence on the child's growth and development - cooperative efforts of parents and staff are essential. Our center and community enrich each child by offering additional, new, or different experiences.
