Today is 12 days away from 2019. My eleven year old was putting on his new shoes for school. They had laces. I had a flash of when he learned how to tie his shoes at Childrens Corner Petaluma in 2010/11?. I asked him if he remembered and he said "Yes, I love that place. Can we go see them?" First of all, they taught him how to tie his shoes, I didn't. Second of all, there is not a better place anywhere including USA that is better and more conscious of the Children than Children's Corner Petaluma. ABSOLUTELY the best ChildCare Center of all time. I know, I have had a couple of kids go to Childrens Corner and know dozens of others with kids from around this country, I've heard comparisons..Childrens Corner Petaluma is a rare gem. You will be lucky to get in.

Both my children went through Children’s Corner and we were recommended to this preschool by a friend who loved it so much and raved about the school. The moment I took the tour of the school I knew it was the perfect fit for our family. The teachers are amazing and so comforting and supportive with the children. I was very nervous to leave my kids for the first time and they made the transition very easy. We loved the school and miss it daily. I only wished we could have stayed so many more years.

Between two children, we spent 5 delightful years at Children's Corner. When it was time for us to move on, I cried tears of sadness because of the enriching, positive, loving experience we had there. Jan, Sherrie, Lorraine, and all the other teachers care deeply about what they do, and about the children they teach in their classrooms. It is truly a gem in the community. Ask anyone that sent their children to Children's Corner, and they have all had the same, positive experience.

Children's Corner Preschool- Childcare

Children’s Corner is a development-based program in Petaluma. We offer an atmosphere of encouragement where kindness and self-esteem are emphasized in order to stimulate a child’s learning and curiosity within a safe, emotionally secure and accepting environment. Recognition is given based on the individual needs of each child. At the same time, your specific parental values are always respected and adhered to. Because of this, we encourage parent and teacher communication. We believe that a supportive relationship between home and the school is essential for successfully developing the child’s sense of confidence and trust. 

Children’s Corner is a fully licensed childcare center featuring both preschool and daycare offering both full- and part-time options. These programs are developmentally specific for children from two years through six years of age. Our facility has excelled in providing quality care for children within these age groups for nearly 35 years. 

Class Structures Children’s Corner offers three different class levels. Each level – or classroom – has one or more teachers depending on the size of the class. 

Toddler Programs: 24 months.
 We strive to afford our youngest children at the school with a program that will encourage their social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth during this very special time of life. We will introduce productive activities to enhance their social and emotional development.
Self-help skills and toilet training are also encouraged as well as other early learning processes. 

Preschool Program
Our preschool classrooms reinforce the skills children have acquired as twos and then focus on the further development of social skills as well as the encouragement of a love for learning. 

Pre-K Program
We offer a wide variety of activities for our Pre-K children. It is designed to increase the child’s understanding of math, science, language and social studies. We encourage personal confidence and self-esteem so that the transition to kindergarten will be a successful one.


The curriculum is developmentally appropriate and carefully constructed
to provide successful and positive learning experiences. Planned within the framework of our philosophy, Children’s Corner’s curriculum includes activities such as: sharing, stories, songs, finger plays, arts and crafts, movement activities, food preparation, exposure to shapes, colors, numbers and letters, as well as celebrating birthdays and holidays. 


Full Time & Flexible Schedules: These have proven to be the most cost effective programs for our parents. 

The advantages are as follows:
• You are only charged for the time
your child is in our care. This allows for flexibility of your schedule without being charged a flat rate for potentially unused time at the school.

• You are allowed an allotted number of
days at no charge to be
used at your discretion (for sick days, family vacations, etc.) 

• You will not be charged for days that the school is closed.
