Program & Facility
Temescal Tots, 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.
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.
At Temescal Tots Infant Toddler Program, we believe that during early childhood children learn most effectively while playing in a nurturing environment with a variety of stimulating activities. Children develop the necessary cognitive, social/emotional and physical skills as a result of many positive interactive experiences with children and adults. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sex, or creed.
We aim to provide our children with a safe, nurturing, and fun play/learning environment. We are committed to providing the best care possible for the families we serve. We strive to provide an environment that fosters curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, positive self-esteem and self-expression through independent play and teacher directed activities.
Our schedule is used as a guide to structure our day and to prepare the children for pre-school, however, it is individualized to meet each child's needs and the temperament of the group. For example, if the children are very active we go outdoors earlier than anticipated and have our story time/ circle time afterward, etc....
