Elsa is a trusted child care

Elsa Childcare

Elsa Childcare is a small family day care located in the hills of Oakland where your child will enjoy top quality care. Elsa is a trusted child care provider and a proud mother of two children. We provide early childhood education for children in a home like environment that will be conducive to a child’s total growth and development. Our program offers care from 3 month to age 5. Our purpose is to build a strong relationship with the child and family and offer continuous care.

Elsa Childcare’s philosophy is that every child should be safe at all times–and feel safe in expressing themselves. Age-appropriate learning activities including music, exploring the natural world, and developmental toys will all be used to encourage the development of each child at their own pace. We will maintain a high caregiver-to-child ratio to ensure each child has the best quality care.
