Children are individuals with unique abilities and needs

At Elan Preschool, we recognize that every child is a unique entity, bringing their own set of abilities and needs to the table. We celebrate this diversity, ensuring that each child's individuality is acknowledged, nurtured, and championed.

Children are capable of far more than we think

Underestimating children is not in our ethos. At Elan, we firmly believe in the boundless potential that every child holds. Our role is to unlock this potential, revealing the remarkable capabilities that often lie dormant and unrecognized.

As a team with the parents, our job is to guide them on their journey to adulthood

We view education as a collaborative effort between the school and parents. Together, as a cohesive unit, we strive to guide each child, supporting their growth and development, ensuring they are well-equipped for the challenges of adulthood.

Children should be taught how to solve problems, whether academic or personal

Beyond the confines of traditional learning, we instill in our students the ability to navigate challenges, be they academic or personal. Life is replete with hurdles; at Elan, we arm our children with the skills to tackle them head-on.

Children should learn independence and self-determination within their maturity level

While safety and guidance are paramount, we also believe in fostering a spirit of independence. We encourage our students to make choices and decisions suited to their maturity level, promoting a sense of self-determination and confidence.

Children should be competent and confident in the skills they develop

At Elan Preschool, it isn't just about learning; it's about mastering. We ensure that children not only acquire skills but excel in them, instilling a deep-rooted confidence that will stay with them for a lifetime.


We have the biggest playground around

Our massive playground has two large play structures, stepping stone, balance beam, rock wall, monkey bars, play house as many more small elements. We also have many riding vehicles like gliders and trikes. Our covered lunch area is outside which we use whenever the weather is good (which is most of the time in the beautiful Bay Area.) Our playground is the second most cited reason why parents enrolled in Elan Preschool (our teachers were #1 of course!)

Safe and Secure

We use a keypad entry system (each family gets their own code) so unauthorized people cannot enter. We regularly sanitize all of the toys, markers, scissors and other such things kids touch a lot. We do a deep sanitization of everything multiple times per year.

Convenient Location

We are very conveniently located next to the Main Library just off of Calaveras Blvd near Highways 237, 680 and 280.

We Have a Very
Popular Date Night

Another little perk we have is a monthly Date Night for enrolled students and their siblings. Drop them off with us and go enjoy a night on the town! We will feed the little ones, keep them busy with fun projects and usually watch a movie. Our teachers who run these have full creative control so each one is different.
