Our mission is to provide children and families a safe, hands on learning environment, where children can learn and grow through respectful interactions and creative curriculum.
Our dedicated primary caregivers plan a monthly curriculum for their groups based on age, development and interest! We believe in allowing children to learn through a combination of structured activities and free choice activities where they can build self esteem, learn to problem solve, and build lasting friendships
We are lucky to have amazing weather in Santa Barbara! We enjoy teaching and exploring in our natural yard where children can explore many textures, see and hear birds and insects, and learn critical thinking skills through child directed play
We believe in the power of community. To foster community we, as a company, we dedicate time and energy to having open and positive communication with staff, parents, and children. We celebrate all families, believe mental wellness is the key to our best work as humans, and believe relationships are the most powerful way to foster learning and growth in each other
Hello! I have owned and operated Growing Babies Infant Center since 2007 when I was pregnant with my first kiddo. In 2009 we opened the preschool at our current Turnpike Location and have since grown from there! It has been an amazing experience and reaffirms that working with children is my passion. I currently hold a Bachelors degree in Child and Family Development, and an Education Specialist degree in School Psychology with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis. I love educating my staff to provide solid social/emotional curriculum and experiences to be better caregivers who model and teach our children how to use functional communication, how to problem solve, how to co-regulate, and how to self advocate for themselves. All of these tools are important throughout their time in the education system, and beyond! Welcome to our school, we are so happy you are exploring to see if we are a good fit for your family.
