Tiny Scholars Daycare
At Tiny Scholars Daycare we believe that the best way for children to learn language is to be immersed in it through play, songs, stories and fun activities. Research has shown that children are most receptive to speaking a new language when they start at an early age. We believe that each child has a personal pace and a unique way of developing physically, emotionally, socially, and cognitively. It is the role of the teacher to build on the things children are able to do in each of the growth areas by creating a rich environment and encouraging children to explore.
The Perfect Learning Environment
Where Kids Learn
"Play is our brain's favorite way of learning."
- Diane Ackerman
Our center features 2 newly renovated playrooms and a brand new classroom designed for optimal learning. We believe that young children still need individualized attention, which is why we have a low ratio of 1:5 teacher to student ratio, and 1:3 for our Chinese Mandarin Immersion class. We are licensed through the state of California, License #197419752. Please contact us to schedule a tour of our home daycare!
