The question to ask is: How can your kids grow in a childcare environment - physically, mentally and emotionally? At Ekata Training Center, we specialize in all three domains.

First, all in-service days and enrichment programs are included with no additional hidden costs. Our competitors often charge extra for van pick up, drop off, in-services days, minor holidays and enrichment classes. At Ekata all of these are included in the cost.

Second, we offer far more than just baby-sitting. And make no mistake about it, most of our competitors while perfectly safe - offer just that - safe babysitting. If your child is going to spend a significant amount of time at a facility other than your home, don't you want them to do something other than play with toys?

Third, physical activity. We offer a full-service fitness facility and pediatric fitness programming that accompanies our martial arts curriculum. And here's another significant family advantage. All parents with children enrolled in our childcare program receive FREE gym memberships! Want to save money and get rid of your Gold's or LA Fitness membership? Well, here's an excellent option and another way you save money with Ekata.

All of our programs are specifically designed to help your child improve physically, mentally and emotionally. Our martial arts curriculum incorporates cognitive learning therapies in order to improve attentiveness and self-regulation. Our childcare program, EkataCare is specifically designed to incorporate social/emotional learning in free play and structured activities so kids learn how to communicate and process their emotions in a healthy, non-confrontational manner. It teaches kids how do have empathy and compassion for other beings while also giving them the tools to be strong and confident. We need our kids to be able to stand up for themselves; to protect themselves with realistic, proven, practical martial arts training but also develop a compassionate, caring mind state so self-protection is the last resort.

Our program includes learning about nature, plant life, other cultures - and life. We also have a kid-specific mindfulness program so that children learn to manage stress effectively. We've seen incidents of childhood stress, self-harm and even addiction skyrocket over the course of this pandemic. And it's time to give our kids the tools they need to flourish under any circumstance.

The Best of All Worlds! Why Choose Just One Approach? Little Hands & Flourishing Minds is an independently owned and operated preschool I founded after determining that my children needed to be challenged intellectually while also being cared for.
The theory behind my approach is based on what I have learned after receiving my A.A in Early Childhood Education, and 7 years of teaching in different childcare centers/pre-schools. Also on my research regarding early childhood development practices, and current state and national learning foundations for California preschools. My goals are to meet a child s social-emotional growth and to contribute to their naturally inquisitive nature through education.
At Little Hands & Flourishing Minds I use a blend of Emergent Curriculum and Academic approaches. I have created a curriculum around themes which facilitate learning through hands-on activities that are either teacher or student led. My curriculum will support child development in the following areas: social-emotional, physical development & health, language, literacy and communication, mathematics, science and technology, creative arts, science, geography, and environmental studies.
I pride myself on providing both high quality care and instruction for each child and I truly believe that children learn best through play and exploration. Therefore, I encourage them to play games, to use their imagination, to express their emotions, and to explore the world around them.
Children in my care will have an enriching preschool experience and be ready for kindergarten: academically, socially and emotionally.
