Preschool & Day Care Programs for San Francisco, CA

We provide structured, educational programs, various indoor and outdoor activities, computer classes, as well as music and art appreciation to help your child be excellently prepared for school and their lifetime.

We focus on helping toddlers and pre-schoolers develop their talents by introducing them to new things in which they have shown an interest. For example, one of our children showed interest in science so we did a science experiment so that the children could learn and see something new happen. One day we tried freezing regular water versus saltwater to see what happens. The children were very excited to see the difference! We often take walks and go to the park. On the way, we explore different plants, flowers, and bugs. We allow children to express their artistic talents through creative crafts, painting, and drawing.

We welcome you to come tour our facilities and meet our staff. Please contact us to learn more about our preschool and day care programs. We serve the San Francisco, CA area.


JamaJaz is excited with the success of its customized curriculum for the children! Daily art, circle time, and other activities revolve around the monthly themes. On a monthly basis, we introduce the children to 2-3 letters, numbers, shapes, and colors. Some of our themes include "going" to the Circus, the Zoo, and the Park. We will "visit" these places in our imagination through books, art, and other activities.

*** We are excited to announce that JamaJaz is partnering with JAMaROO kids and Miss Yuriko Urushibata of Candence Music Therapy. On a weekly basis, we will have visiting teachers to teach them about movement and music. Yurikos uses music to addresses physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs for our children through interventions such as singing, listening, and playing instruments, while JAMaROO Specializing in developmentally appropriate Dance, Music, Yoga, Storytime & Art Classes for Young Children.***
