Children'sV illage is the place for children, no doubt about it !!! My children started there as infants and I am very thankful for all the patience and love my children received from the staff. I must comment on the Avoid Infant Care statement, My experience with the infant head teacher was truly the opposite, she was helpful and full of information when ever I had a question or worry about my infant. The infant staff was very nuturing and loving. Sorry for your bad day at CV. I highly recommend CV for any family looking for a center that will embrace not only your child but your family as well. CV has great out door space, age appropriate activities, culture diversity in staff and children, monthly culture events for the families and dedicated staff, just to high lite a few of their many qualities.

this is a great preschool, nice garden and atmosphere. We love that our child has gotten to come to this preschool. We had a rough start in the infant room and almost pulled our child out of the program, the head teacher is hard to work with.Really bad skills working wiht parents even though you can tell she loves the kids.It is sometime impossible to get her to work with you. But were happy when our child moved on the the other classrooms where the teacher know how to work with the parents.The teachers in the toddler and preschool are amazing....If you can wait until your child is past the infant age so that dont have to be part of that program then its worth it to enroll

CV is wonderfully located in the SOMA district, close to downtown and the freeways. The facilities are clean, safe, and whimsically artistic. There are plenty of toys and activities to stimulate children. My husband and I especially love the diversity of the school, as seen in the staff, children, and school curriculum. The staff in general is very friendly and engaging EXCEPT for the head teacher of the Infant Program. She has a "chip off her shoulder" and is extremely rude. Not exactly what you would expect from a person in charge of babies. My son has completed the infant and toddler program. I don't recommend the infant program; I definitely recommend the toddler program.

Cons: Rude Infant Program Head Teacher

We love Childrens Village the staff is thoughtful and kind and have help develop our children. The garden and the outside space can not be found anywhere in the city. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found this day care and preschool. Our daughter has grown because of the staff and the love she gets from a very caring staff.. This is a place for parents who want to be part of a community it is not a place to just drop your kids off, it is a place to join and help . Parents know each other and care about each others kids.This is the best day care and preschool in the city.

CV has been part of our family's life for over seven years. My third child is now in the infant program, and I've had two other children go through the program from the infant room through preschool. My youngest has the same teachers that my oldest had, and I believe the unprecedented staff retention is but one testament to the sense of community this school has created. Monthly cultural events on Friday evenings bring our families together to enjoy great music, fantastic food, and exposure to customs of the world. The integration of arts into the curriculum is another positive development over the past several years. The campus is decorated with beautiful sculptures and murals created by the children, and music and dance are staples of the educational curriculum. We are truly grateful to have found CV, it is a real gem of a school.

Our child has attended Children's Village for nearly five years, from nine months through preschool. I can't imagine a better environment for young children! The staff is warm and nurturing. The facilities are unparalleled -- three playgrounds (with a covered area for outdoor play when it rains), planters for the child-tended vegetable gardens, well-equipped classrooms, and warm SOMA weather. The preschool curriculum is top-knotch, with the children suggesting new topics for study each month. The location is convenient for anyone commuting to the South or East Bay or headed downtown. But the best aspect of Children's Village is the strong and diverse community. It's truly a wonderful place!

CV is an amazing, diverse and vibrant community. Our son truly loves the center and we are very pleased with the education they provide him. Parents are very committed to the center and play an active role. Most recently several parents volunteered time to work with staff in order to develop an amazing outdoor play area that rivals many of SF's parks. We could not be happier
