I'd like to recommend a fabulous home-based pre-school and daycare in El Sobrante. The Sandbox is a small, traditional based pre-school with Montessori influence. They also provide before and after-school care with pickup/drop-off from the local elementary schools (Valley View, Olinda, Murphy, etc.). They accept children from 1 year to 5-6th grade. The women who run The Sandbox are all members of the Early Childhood Mentor Program and are much more than just childcare providers. When my son started attending after- school care there a couple of years ago, he was immediately welcomed into a warm, safe and supportive family. They truly love and respect every child in their care and teach the children to the do same, amongst all ages. They are the full package; from pre-school to homework help to the amazing experiences they expose the children to (ex: they became the only daycare in the Bay-Delta Region certified to raise and hatch trout eggs, which they released into a local creek). I cannot recommend them highly enough.
