Castro Valley

Feb 2002

Hi, I'm looking for recommendations for preschools in Castro Valley for my soon-to-be 3 year old for next fall. I prefer a play-based, part-time program. Thank you,

when i looked at preschools for my 3 year old, i found 3 that i can highly recommend that are within minutes of castro valley. woodroe woods in hayward, first presbyterian chuch of hayward/castro valley, and little lambs in san leandro. all of these programs seemed excellent. i chose one based on availability, cost, and location. suzie

Hi , We just moved to Danville last year and barely know anything about the area .We're looking into preschool programs for 3 year olds for the fall. I'd love to hear any thoughts or experiences - both positive and/or negative - that moms have had with either Autumn creek learning center in Danville or Stratford School in Danville. If anyone knows of a place they would recommend, will you please pass it on to me? Thanks so much! Kate

I can highly recommend Autumn Creek Learning Center in Danville. After having my children at another Danville preschool for over a year, I switched the younger two to Autumn Creek a year ago and haven't looked back. The biggest testament to how much they care for the children for me is the fact that they are worked with my children, both of whom have special needs and IEPs through the local school district. The owner runs a tight ship, but it pays off. My kids love going there! Happy Autumn Creek Mom

I would highly recommend that you consider Tri Cities Children Center for your young one. Our son, now eleven, attended there from eight months until he left for kindergarten. It has several facilities in our area: Newark,(at the Ohlone Campus site); Fremont (on Grimmer); and I believe one at Logan High (for young mothers) and Milpitas. There may also be a facility for children with special needs as well as a twenty four hour facility for the employees of NUMMI. They take children from 3 mos.???, have a sliding scale, provide meals, diapers and "will potty train". I believe they are open from 6:00 - 6:00, and have age segregated classrooms, lots of play facilities, toys, books and learning materials. There is also an abundance of hugs, love and soft warm fuzzies. The Grimmer facility, the largest, was comfy and "like home". Our son loved it.

After a horrible situation with an "in home provider" I sought out a large facility, with specified programs, curriculum and activities. It was also critical for me that the center was "fully accountable" to someone other than themselves. All state required guidelines and regulations are enforced and the children reflect the healthy diversity of our area.

I was delighted from the first day I met with the staff and toured their facility on Grimmer until our son's "graduation", when there was a tear or two on my face. (I'm mushy about these things as you can probably tell). I also served on their Board for several years and have the highest respect for not only their programmatic services but the business side of their operation. Friends who currently have their children at Tri Cities continue to be very pleased with it.

Tri Cities' main number is 657-2920.
