Bartell Childcare and Learning Center in Oakland, CA, is a family childcare business serving families with children ages 2 months to 12 years of age. Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday, 6am - 6pm
Our philosophy is based on evidence and scientific research. Each child is unique. Based on this premise, our program is structured to provide an array of hands-on experiences that allow children to learn according to their stage of development and individual pace. Our goal is to help each child grow in self-awareness, responsibility, and gain a sense of order through engagement in age-appropriate daily routines.
As a parent, choosing the right caregiver for your child is one of the most critical decisions you'll ever have to make. We acknowledge parents as a child’s first and most important teacher. Bartell caregivers are ready to partner with parents in ensuring that children receive continuity of care. Bridging the gap between care at home and childcare is crucial to children’s sense of wellbeing.
Our dedicated staff enjoys working with children and families. All staff are fingerprinted, has CPR and health and safety certification. To stay knowledgeable with information in the child care field, staff attends yearly workshops and conferences.
