Children's health and safety is our first priority in our program.
As everyone's concern, parents have inquired about our precaution regarding coronavirus. We understand children we work with are primarily infants and toddlers, they have an immune system still developing and not as strong as adults.
To prevent widespread illness in your child’s child care program, we recommend that your child stay home from child care if experiencing flu or cold symptoms.
In an effort to support the well-being of all families in our child care, we have continued to monitor recommendations related to the 2019 novel Coronavirus (n-CoV). This situation is dynamic and rapidly changing with new guidance and recommendations issued.
While this is a serious public health threat, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) characterizes the immediate health risk from the new coronavirus as low for anyone who is unlikely to be exposed to this virus.
The coronavirus is in the family of viruses that cause the common cold, so symptoms and prevention measures are similar. To decide whether or not to send your child to school and whether or not to seek medical help, please consider the following:
Consider keeping your child at home if he or she has any of the following symptoms:
There are currently no known exposures to the coronavirus in our child care programs. Although this is a low risk situation to our homes, we are taking high precautions and will continue to update the families as circumstances warrant.

To help prevent cold, flu, and coronavirus:
If your child has cold and flu symptoms, please observe your child at home before deciding whether or not to send them to child care. Your child should be physically able to participate in all child care activities upon return to school. Keeping a sick child at home will minimize the spread of such viral infections in the child care home.

We are excited to share with you our most recent update about our brand new infant and toddler program and new facility in Portola. Here is a brief introduction of the new program.
Our brand new facility is located at Sweeny and Dunsmuir St, steps away from The San Francisco School. The Portola neighborhood is a diverse, family-oriented community located conveniently near the 101 and 280 freeways.
Primary Care Educator
Your child's primary early child caregiver and educator in Portola is Pyrena. She has been in the early childhood education since 2015. She has obtained 23.5 units in Child Development from City College of San Francisco and a BA Degree in Business Communication. She is fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese. Thus, we can offer an immersive Bilingual language environment for all young children.
Inspiring by the Montessori and Reggio Emilla approach, we carefully design and arrange our home-like learning environment for our young explorers. Children can feel safe and engage in the individualized hands-on activities, e.g. free play, kids yoga, reading moment, dance & music, and art craft etc. Also, we will have a spacious outdoor learning playground.
Recommendation from parent
"Pyrena is a truly special person and I am so glad that our daughter Ellie was able to be in her care before we left SF. In addition to being a positive and happy person, Pyrena really cares about the children that attend her daycare and wants to help them learn and grow. She is really great about communicating the day's events and discussing any highlights." - Yelp, Micha S
