Our Location

Located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, our daycare facility is ideally situated for easy drop-off and pick-up, and daily adventures to playgrounds. A sunny, 1,400 sq. ft. space, we have custom-designed our caring environment to cater to the needs of our charges, aged 6 months to 3 years and 9  months. Filled with bright colors, books and toys, tables and chairs and pictures to learn from, we happily spend our days playing and learning together. 

We are fully outfitted with cribs and sleeping mats for naptime, and have created a cozy reading room where we spend quiet time with our books. A small, safe outdoor space give us the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and sand- and water-play any time. Our in-house kitchen is where we cook all our healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks from scratch.
