Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

From the Director:

We are a vibrant and evolving children's center, located at Cambrian Park in San Jose. Now in our 9th year, we have grown from a family daycare into a 5000 square ft. children's center. We provide to-and-from transportation to all Cambrian schools, as well as some outlying Union and San Jose schools. In our effort to be in step with the technology explosion that has become the hallmark of our city, we created a non-profit media center for children, to provide an enriching opportunity to learn about computers. Our preschool, after school, and media center all share the same facility @ Steindorf Elementary, a school owned and operated by the Cambrian School District, leased to private educational and transportation businesses. Our convenient location allows us to serve the many types of families found in the Cambrian Area: preschoolers to 6th graders can all enjoy the various activities found at Steindorf, all while attending our children's center!
