Infant/Toddler Program

About Us

The Temescal Tots Infant/Toddler Program, founded in 1996 by mother of two children herself and child development specialist, Simone Stevens, provides quality day-care and learning enrichment services to children: from newborns to 4-year olds. We are open Monday-Friday to provide a safe and welcoming environment to your precious children. We understand the need for working parents to be confident that their child is not only safe, but is in an environment where their development is stimulated and enhanced.

Our Program. Our Family. Our Community.

Temescal Tots is experienced in the care and nuturing of children. A truly multi-ethnic environment, Temescal Tots is dedicated to helping each child achieve their unique greatness. The children truly are our future and Temescal Tots constantly strives to meet the day-care needs of today’s working parents. We believe that during early childhood, children learn most effectively while playing in a nurturing environment with a variety of stimulating activities.

“Your Child’s Home Away From Home is more than just a slogan to me. Instead, it reflects the spirit with which I created, and have operated, Temescal Tots. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you and have you tour our facilities.”

What Our Parents Say

From : Penny

“Simone Stevens and Temescal Tots were the best thing that could have happened to our family when we were searching for daycare for our (at the time) 7 month old daughter.”

From: Erika

“Our daughter started at Temescal Tots when she was around 15 months old. We had previously had her with a nanny at our house. The social interaction she got at Temescal Tots brought her out of her shell.”

From: Dr. Sara

“My husband and I visited tens of local daycares and knew we had found “the one” the minute we were welcomed by Simone Stevens and family into their lovely home. For little ones spending the workday away from home, I cannot recommend a more special place in which to learn and grow.”

From: Alicia & Omar

“I highly recommend Temescal Tots for anyone seeking a warm, loving and fun environment. As a first time mother, I wanted to ensure that my son received the love and care and personal attention he was used to at home. As such, Temescal Tots felt more like a family environment rather than a sterile daycare facility.”

From: Parisa

“The best preschool ever!!! My daughter attended ages 1-4. Provides Top notch curriculum, love, gentle care, and very family oriented.”
