Early Childhood Center

SAY San Diego’s Early Childhood Center is in the heart of the Viewridge Business Park and open to children ages 6 weeks through 5 years old. Our commitment and passion towards a child’s early learning stems from recognizing that children need to be nurtured and supported throughout their entire childhood. During this period, children learn best from adults they trust, through active exploration and play, and through consistent routines and relationships. Our Center celebrates children's innate curiosity and their desire to make sense of their world. Our nature inspired classrooms are thoughtfully designed to create meaningful experiences indoors and out. From the calming colors and natural elements to the intentional mood lighting and cozy furniture- we provide a safe, relaxing and home like feel where children have a sense of belonging and can fully absorb and learn through all their senses. Schedule a tour of our Center today, where your children will have a wonderful time learning, growing and having fun! We look forward to meeting you!

Jerabek Preschool

Jerabek Preschool, like all of our partnered San Diego preschools, nurtures every area of your baby or young child’s development. Warm and caring staff will respond to your child’s emerging needs, growth, and self-esteem, all while providing a safe-yet-stimulating environment.

Our goal is to provide a high-quality preschool meeting each child's needs. This center offers a rich learning environment that encourages children's natural curiosity and supports them to take risks that lead to new skill development. We value and respect the children’s feelings, interest, strengths, and skills. We provide children an opportunity to participate in planned, active learning experiences to build their readiness skills. We believe that children can learn much more when they experience things and are exposed to different topics to discover their world and express themselves. We provide an environment where children can be safely challenged through activities, experiences and build healthy self-esteem as they develop and learn.
