Educational Program


The Emeryville Child Development Center takes a developmentally responsive whole-child approach to learning. Teachers foster nurturing relationships with children and families. We appreciate that children learn best in a play-based, language rich, experiential setting. Learning environments address children’s interests and individual needs while promoting positive social interactions.

Teachers use the California State Early Learning Foundations as the programmatic guide.  These Foundations address the essential social-emotional, cognitive, and physical skills that children need for ongoing success. 

The Center features age appropriate programs with some of the best caregiver-to-child ratios anywhere in the Bay Area. The available programs (and ratios) are: Infant (1:3), Younger Toddler (1:4), Older Toddler (1:6) and Pre-K (1:8).

In addition to the programs above, the Center offers a ‘Kinder Kamp’ each summer for children about to embark on their transition to Kindergarten.  For more information, call the Center at (510) 596-4343.
