Growing Minds is not a typical Family Day Care and it is not a typical Center. Growing Minds combines the very best of both options to give your child an exciting and stimulating program designed to ignite a love of learning and foster a curiosity about the world around us.
Growing Minds is a project based program. Our environment provides a nurturing family atmosphere with stimulating preschool activities; our field trips expose children to a wide variety of experiences ranging from music and art to science and nature. Weekly field trips have included The Randall Museum, The SF Symphony,The Velveteen Rabbit Ballet, The Legion of Honor Art Museum, The SF Botanical Gardens, The Conservatory of Flowers, SF MOMA, The Magowan's Mirror Maze at Pier 39, our Local Fire Station, and Rolling Out Cafe. We also frequent The Academy of Science, Sloat Garden Center, Safeway, and many Playgrounds. We attend Weekly Story Time at the Parkside Library. As well as being prepared to enter kindergarten, your child will develop a desire and passion for learning about the world in which we live.
