Quality child care means Whole Child Development and meeting your child's total needs for academic, social, emotional, and physical development.

The early years of a child's life are most important because that is when the characteristics of their personalities and their own self-image develop. We teach your child through a fun educational process. This gives your child a positive outlook on learning and prepares them to meet the challenges of the adult world.

We emphasize love and care in our teacher-child relationships and an extraordinary curriculum, which includes programs for children who are 2 years old, 3 year olds, and 4 to 6 year olds: Toddler, Preschooler, pre-Kindergarten, and Transitional Kindergarten. Our award-winning math program, McGraw Hill Reading Series, and "Whole Child Development" curriculum will ensure your child receives an outstanding educational experience and develops a positive self-concept.

Our programs enable your child to meet the challenges of the adult world and thrive.

Jean Piaget was a Swiss psychologist, famous for his studies of the intellectual growth of children and his influential theories of cognitive development. As Piaget describes it, "Children learn in stages in an upward spiral of understanding, with the same problems attacked and resolved more completely at each higher level. Cognitive development occurs through alternative and interactive play and skill development."

At Foster City Preschool and Daycare Center we believe in social responsibility and commitment to the community. For over 17 years our children have participated in the Trike-A-Thon sponsored by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We provide the children with materials and learning on bicycle safety. Through this program, Foster City Preschool has donated over $93,000 to St. Jude to help cancer-stricken children.
