Hi all! Isabel and Sister Daycare have always been incredible, and they go above and beyond at every chance they get. Sister daycare is actually our neighbor! One day I heard children playing and I looked out my window and saw a big beautiful backyard with children. I had been looking for a daycare for my son for some time, so I decided to go over and introduce myself and find out more about Isabel and her daycare. Isabel was kind enough to invite me in and show me around. She spoke about the importance of caring for children and her passion for children. I had a good feeling about her. A few weeks later I put my son in! Very easy process! My son has been with Sister Daycare over a year now and he loves it! My son, who is 3 always tells how his day was. He would tell me that he had fun playing with his friends and does arts and crafts. This year, has been very tough for all of us. My daughter had to stay home for virtual learning, so the times that I needed someone to care for her, Isabel would offer to help. Now that my daughter will be returning to school, Isabel has offered to pick up my daughter from the bus. I honestly don't know what I would do if we didn't have Isabel. Isabel goes above and beyond for my family and I when we are in need! The best part is that she loves my children like if they were her own. We are very blessed to have Isabel and her helpers! I recommend Sister Daycare! You won't regret it!

Au P'tit Monde's Photo

Au P'tit Monde

1980 Clarke Avenue, Palo Alto, CA

Starting at $1900/mo

Au P'tit Monde de San Francisco and Au P'tit Monde de la P ninsule are two French Immersion Preschools for children 2-5 year olds. The lessons in the "Petite Ecole" and "Grande Ecole" take place entirely in French. Because of the way the brain develops in a child's early years, children are able to learn foreign languages much easier at a younger age. From day one, APM Classes are taught using French immersion. Teachers utilize a combination of visual and verbal indicators when speaking, and students begin to understand and speak French right away.

The children at Au P'tit Monde come from many different cultures and backgrounds. Through stories, songs and games children learn to understand and express themselves in French. More than half of our students come from families where little or no French is spoken. Learning a language is easiest for young children and parents are often surprised how quickly their children pick the language up and bring home songs and poems from school.
The school is in a beautiful brick building on a tree lined street, where the many windows enhance our many rich learning environments. The classrooms are large with bright, spacious areas that give a holistic feeling of a home away from home. Each classroom has a mini atelier, a reading area/meeting area, building area, light table and dramatic play area.

The school is conveniently located five minutes away from freeway 101, the International School of the Peninsula and IKEA.
