I consider myself very fortunate to have found Cal-Tot. My daughter attended Cal-Tot from age 4 months to 5 years (she is now in Kindergarten) and my son is currently enrolled at the center. The teachers are incredibly dedicated and caring and the parents are very involved. It is truly a special community and I am very grateful that I can leave my babies knowing they are in excellent hands in a warm, loving environment.
Cat-tot is an exceptional environment for infants through pre-K. I toured every daycare facility in Downtown LA and some on the Westside before enrolling my 12 week old daughter at Cal-tot. There is an open-door policy for parents, so I was able to visit my child every day during my lunch break for the first year she was there. They have a wonderful community of long-standing, experienced staff. The family community is supportive and engaged with the center. The facilities are excellent too. There is a private outside playground that is shaded by big trees where the children do artwork, garden, and play. Its a hidden oasis in an otherwise urban DTLA jungle! As for the person who wrote that unfavorable review? That parent probably wouldn't have fit into the supportive, inclusive, child-centered environment anyway.
My son attended this school starting around eight months and my daughter will be starting soon. This is a great school. Teachers and director are loving with great sense of humor. They understand developmentally appropriate instruction and care for the children in a clear and consistent manner. Parents are involved and children are happy.
Never sign up for this wait list! They will just take your money and never give you clear answer about when your child will have a spot. This place is a scam!
Full of caring, dedicated teachers, involved parents and well-developed children. I had two children come through this center from 2002-2010, each starting at about four months old and staying until kindergarten. My children entered kindergarten well prepared for school, able to learn in a structured environment. But one of the best compliments I've heard from elementary school teachers is that my children are comfortable with themselves as people, not overly stressed or insecure. I attribute a lot of this to Cal-Tot, which focuses on allowing children to be children, while teaching them about the basics of readings and math and kindness. What a wonderful place.
