Hello! We are moving to the El Cerrito Hills and would appreciate recommendations for preschools with openings for a 4-year-old starting in January. Many schools I’ve called are already full for the school year.Dec 2, 2021

Touring a couple schools near our new house, but can't find any reviews of Little Tree Montessori in El Cerrito. Does anyone have any experience with them? Also meeting with Rising Sun, which has plenty of glowing reviews but a bit further for us. Open to other recommendations between EL Cerrito and downtown Oakland. Preferably starting this fall but also ok if we need to wait for an opening later in the year or next year. Ideally looking for him to have a Montessori education and be able to get to know and grow with the teachers. Also, if you know of any great in home daycares that could take him now, I'd appreciate it! He's 17 months old. Thank you!Mar 13, 2020

I am having a hard time finding a *reasonably priced* preschool in or around El Cerrito that runs on an academic year rather than year-round schedule. My husband and I teach, and so we spend the summer road-tripping, camping and caring for elderly parents back east. We have found a few promising places, but so far they are all year-round. The thought of paying thousands of dollars for the 10+ weeks that we are gone for the summer seems somehow absurd.
I realize that many parents work year-round and appreciate the ability to have a stable placement for their children throughout, but I imagine that there are others in a similar position to us that have found accommodations.
Thanks for any leads.Apr 9, 2018

Hi there! We have been looking for a daycare for our daughter who will be four months when I return to work in October. We have somewhat of a tight budget ($1300-1400) and are looking for a place near El Cerrito. Please let us know about any openings you may know of- we're feeling a bit stuck. We've tried Bananas but haven't quite heard back from places we've reached out to.

Hi there! I'm looking for M-F fulltime daycare starting in May for my daughter, who will be 9 months old at that time. I've tried calling as many places as possible and am having no luck getting a spot for an infant! Any help would be much appreciated. Closer to Del Norte Bart is best, but I'm flexible. Thank you!Mar 11, 2017

Hi BPN, our childcare plans didn't work out as expected and we are now looking for daycare for our baby girl in El Cerrito or the surrounding area beginning in April. I work in El Cerrito for WCCUSD, and will be returning to work April 17th. I work 8:30-4 during the school year with some intermitten work in the summer. Lucía will be 5 months old the week prior to me returning to work. If you have an infant spot available at your daycare or can recommend someone who does, please contact us. We prefer a small in home daycare.
Thank you!Feb 17, 2017

I have a 14 month old son and now starting to really research daycare options in or near El Cerrito area. We are a conscious living family so an eco-friendly, clean with minimal plastic place would be ideal. Warm and attentive caregivers. Lots of activities and play time since our kiddo is full of energy. Also would be great to have organic meals and/or healthy snacks provided, part-time available and supported potty training.
Looking forward to your recommendations!
Thanks a lot in advance!Dec 30, 2016
