Gates & Bridges Preschool 1601 10th Ave. San Francisco • 415-664-3005
We believe children are naturally motivated to learn. A supportive, stimulating atmosphere with room for the child’s input and interest is optimal. As a full-time day care center, it is our responsibility and our goal to create a safe, child-centered environment. We seek to balance various ingredients of early childhood philosophies into an exemplary program. Our approach gives attention to emotional, social, physical, creative and cognitive development. Since we also believe that children who spend the day apart from their parents need a more intimate, involved setting than the traditional preschool environment, we emphasize relationships among children, parents and teachers and continuity.

Sweet Peas Preschool 2730 17th Street San Francisco • 415-701-0495
Our mission is to provide high quality childcare which will foster the independence and growth of your child. As your child is loved and nurtured, they will engage in age appropriate activities and play. At this developmental level, we hope to instill that process is more important than product. Opportunities to develop preschool skills, such as cutting with scissors or writing names, are planned and available for those children that seek to learn them. We will practice fine motor development through hands-on projects and manipulatives. We will work on large motor skills through regular outdoor play, games, and onsite classes such as yoga and gymnastics. We will promote rhythm, listening skills, and appreciation of music by offering a music class and singing on a daily basis. More importantly we will provide an atmosphere in which your child will feel safe, secure, and comfortable trying new things.
