Miss Karen's Learn & Care Preschool

565 Robin Dr., Santa Clara, CA

Starting at $65/day

I've been a childcare provider for 30+ years and have worked with hundreds of preschool and school-aged children.

I have taught at public and private preschools, public elementary schools, and family daycare centers including Santa Clara Unified schools, Bowers, Washington Open, Wilson, Briarwood, Hughes, and Montague.

I raised six children of my own and was an active parent participant at their schools and extracurricular activities.

I have 40+ child development units, 130+ hours of professional development training, and an associate teacher's permit.

I am certified in pediatric CPR, AED, and First Aid. I have Live Scan fingerprinting, background check, and I'm a mandated reporter. I have extensive experience with English language learners. I am fully Vaccinated, including Covid 19.

My licensed family daycare facility (license #434411459) provides a full classroom environment for a variety of learning activities including math, science, cooking, music, sensory development, small and large motor development, conflict resolution, and outdoor play.

Our large classroom includes dedicated areas for reading, art projects, playhouse and dress-up, building, puzzles, science, and cooking, as well as outdoor spaces for biking, water play, climbing, and sports activities. We go on walking field trips to nearby parks and libraries.

I prepare a daily educational curriculum with activities centered around a theme. For example, Letter Jj Day, Counting & Sorting Day, Patterns Day, Cooking Day, Sewing Day, Color Green Day, Feelings Day, Nature Walk Day, Book Day, Measuring Day, Bubbles Day, Exercise Day, Opposites Day, Rhyming Day, Gardening Day, etc.

I provide breakfast, drinks, snacks, teeth brushing, and laundry services. Children bring their own lunches. Each child is provided for individually based on his or her dietary needs.

A report is sent home each day outlining foods eaten, nap times, and the activities that each child participated in.

I am open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. I accept full-time, part-time, and drop-in students ages 1 year and up. Children do not need to be potty trained.

The children in my program are a very large part of each others lives, as well as mine. It is very much like a family.

Please call or email with questions or to arrange a preschool tour!

Miss Karen is amazing. Trust is the first thing when I think about her; and that's why I sent my daughter to her school for 3 years until she went to Kindergarden. We were welcomed and treated very well. My daughter loved going to school, and always talked about Miss Karen and her friends. We love her. I highly recommend Miss Karen preschool!

I won't have enough space to describe how great this daycare is. Each child is truly cared about and the team goes out of their way to make sure every kid feels at ease. Natalia is in constant communication with the parents to reassure them or send pictures... The teachers prepare daily activities that keep the kids entertained and offer learning opportunities every day. The food is cooked on site and only uses high quality ingredients for healthy, balanced meals. The facility itself is brand new, very clean and well furnished. There is an outdoor space that the kids adore (with a train!). We all want the best for our children and I honestly never thought I could find a daycare like this so I can't recommend it enough. Heads up to the amazing team there and thank you for taking such good care of our little ones!!
