From Our Website

Child Education Center (CEC) offers families in the San Francisco East Bay Area licensed daycare and preschool services for children ages six weeks to six years old. By partnering with parents, our dedicated staff provides a nurturing early education experience that values play as the most efficacious method of learning.


Child Education Center is a Reggio-inspired learning community that believes in the transformative power of relationships for impactful, high quality educational experiences. Our playwork is child-initiated and teacher-framed, with parents resourced as the child's first, and most important, educator. Open-ended inquiry drives the learning process, with activities that are hands-on and sensory-rich, reflecting a multidisciplinary approach to constructivist education.


We believe that all children are born capable and competent. CEC offers programs that encourage children to explore and learn tailored to their age and development. Each program seeks to foster the child's positive self-image through respectful care by dedicated teachers. Play is the hard-work of childhood! CEC represents a Negotiated Curriculum, child-initiated and teacher-framed, to support project-based learning. Children create their own knowledge through hands-on experiences, with the opportunity to represent their understanding in many ways, including Art, Building, Crafts, Dance, Dramatic Play and Storytelling.


The CEC Preschool Teacher is responsible for providing a safe and developmentally appropriate within our preschool program for children ages three months through six years in accordance with all relevant regulations, policies, and procedures. The Preschool Teacher will be respectful of children and parents, and partner with the admin team and Executive Director to ensure that there are adequate materials and supplies and that equipment and facilities are clean, safe and well maintained. Plan and implement activities to meet the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social needs of the children in the program.
