"Little Friends" is a small child-centered, playbased program offering nurturing care, fostering independence and individuality to children ages 1 to 5 years.


Our low teacher-child ratio allows for individual attention and care to children's needs.


We nourish children's interests and create a nurturing, safe, and healthy  environment where children can explore and discover, experience art, music, nature, and books. We believe in hands-on learning and children learning through their senses. We enjoy seeing children grow learning another languages and culture.* At least one adult / teacher speaks German only


We help children establish and maintain relationships with other children and believe in children's future success through their early learning experiences in the mastery of understanding and managing their own feelings. 


Every day, we serve healthy and nutritious snacks and a warm lunch, organic whenever possible. 


Little Friends Family Child Care is located in the neighborhoods of  Noe Valley, Glen Park, Bernal Heights, and Diamond Heights. 

Public transportation (BART, J-Church, Muni and cooperate shuttles (Google, Apple, Genentech) are in walkable distance.
