Pillar Childcare

At Pillar, we realize having support with your little ones makes for a better you. Whether you plan to use our services full-time or only a few hours a week, we’ve got you covered. Our low teacher: child ratios of 1:5 allow for intentional and individualized learning to take place. Our only caveat is that you have to stay on site as we are not a licensed daycare. 

Pillar childcare is a space that caters to the unique needs of children and parents. We offer a safe, clean, fun environment for children to create, investigate, and build relationships. Although we are not a licensed daycare, we do follow the guidelines and standards of California Community Care Licensing.

We support children’s learning through our environment and experiences that are:pillar childcare play space
  1. Developmentally appropriate

Curriculum & Environment

We follow a play-based, emergent curriculum that allows children to explore and find areas of interest. To inform the curriculum , teachers observe what children are interested in and help them continue to explore by providing more materials and activities related to interests. Our teachers guide children by asking questions, and encouraging children to explore concepts that build upon prior knowledge. 

It is our goal to represent a broad range of interest areas in our classroom, by providing the following areas to explore:
