About the Program:

Las Tunitas Academy is a small high-quality daycare and preschool in the quiet neighborhood of Hercules by the Bay. We are thrilled to provide our community with a program that is bilingual, play based, nature inspired, and follows a Reggio Emilia curriculum.

Our goal is to provide a safe and loving environment where children are given the opportunity to play and have fun. It is through play that children construct knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Play is of most importance in the early years where children will grow strong social-emotional, physical, and cognitive skills.

I posted on Yelp as well, but if you’re looking for high quality, child led home daycare taught by educated, bilingual, kind teachers, this is the place for you. Teacher Cristina and Teacher Mayra have taught and shown my son so much. He has truly blossomed in their care. The Reggio-based, outdoor centered, play based daycare has been a gift for my family. I only wish it had been open sooner.

Las Tunitas also provides home cooked meals and snacks, and they have gotten my son to eat things I never would have been able to get him to touch. Hercules can be a tough place to find quality childcare, but alas Tunitas filled a huge need in the community.
