Little Urbanites was founded on the idea that every city kid deserves an oasis of childhood delight and within our doors that is exactly what they’ll find. Our combination of play-based and emergent project based curriculum provide a holistic approach that nurtures a strong sense of self and the natural desire to participate and understand social groups.

Our day is spent with extensive periods of outdoor play and creative arts exploration because we believe that cognitive readiness naturally comes from the healthy physical, social, and emotional development offered in play.

School Size

Little Urbanites offers care for 17 children daily with 2 full-time teachers and assistant teacher and onsite Director. Our facility consists of two classrooms, a kitchen, two bathrooms; one adult and one kids sized, as well as a large playground with gardening space.

Programs

We recognize the opportunity for peer learning offered in mixed age groups and have chosen a schedule that offers a balance of mixed-age play time and separate group times, where teachers can offer specific developmentally appropriate activities.

Routine

Though we value "free play", we follow a daily routine that provides children a great sense of security as they anticipate and participate in the predictable progress of our day.

Food

Eating at school offers children an opportunity to be exposed to new foods and see the variety of things that other people eat. Meals are also a wonderful time for rich conversation and connection with the group. We have planned our breakfast and afternoon snack to be kid friendly, nutritious and based on primarily wholesome ingredients. And we encourage parents to pack simple nutritious lunches.

Location

We are located at 1258 20th Avenue in San Francisco’s Sunset District just a half block from Golden Gate Park.
