The Children's Pre-School Center (CPSC), located in Palo Alto, is one of the premier child development programs in the mid-Peninsula region of the Bay Area providing excellent early education and development for 140 children from 2 months through 5 years with a staff of 5 administrators and 42 early childhood educators. NAEYC Accredited continuously since 1991, CPSC situates individually attuned, supportive, respectful, responsive relationships between teachers and children and parents at the center of its learning program. Educators work collaboratively with parents to create a community where children are well supported in their development for optimum social, cognitive, and emotional outcomes. Our program includes individualized and group support for parents as they encounter the joys and challenges of parenting as they work to meet career and family demands.
Diversity is also a cornerstone of the CPSC program. The staff as well as the community of families at CPSC is made up of people from all over the world and all parts of the US society. Members of this community bring to CPSC many languages, sing and dance to many different kinds of music, celebrate a large variety of holidays and traditions, and thus enjoy a very rich cultural and educational environment.
