We ve moved here from San Francisco about two years ago. Our son was in a topnotch childcare in the city, so it was our priority to find one in Pleasanton that could measure up to the one we re used to. We ve done extensive research finally decided on HCDC. The teachers and staffs are wonderful, caring and patient. The curriculum is outstanding. Our son started out in the toddler s room. When he turned three, he was moved up to a classroom with a mix of older children. We had great concerns at the beginning, but the concerns were soon subsided after our observations and the understanding for the teaching method. The theory for the mixing the three to older age children in the same room was younger children tend to learn faster when they have older children as an example much like having older siblings. The older children learn to be caring, set good examples and being leaders for the younger children. All are under careful guidance and close supervision from the teachers. Both my husband and I have long work hours and commute, because of our long day, it is very important to know that our son is in good hands, so that we can have piece of mind.

This is a school with certain teachers that are uncaring, rude to the children and just plainly disqualified as a caregiver. We enrolled our child in this school, paid the deposit, and were then allowed to schedule a 2 hours visit to the assigned classroom. It was during our lengthy visit to the assigned classroom that we discovered how rude and impatient the teachers were in handling the kids. They rushed the kids through different "programs", cut them off from finishing their sentences when the kids took a bit longer to organize their thoughts, shuffled them in a rough way and showed no genuine interest in the well being of the children. We have another child who attended another preschool so we are not new in this arena, but were never so horrified by what we have seen during our visit at Hacienda Child Center. We requested a withdrawal of enrollment immediately and were informed that we would not be able to get our deposit back even though our child never attended 1 day of school. They hv no waiting list, and just took $1200 of hard earned money like that. As working parent, the last thing that you want to have to worry is the well-being of your kid while you are at work

This review is two reviews in one, because both my children attend this center, one in the toddlers room and one in the pre-school. Having recently moved here from out of state, I am impressed with the quality of the teachers and caregivers at this school. My older child is reading and writing well(Pre-K), developing leadership skills, learning Spanish and Mandarin, and truly flourishing here. My younger one is expanding her vocabulary rapidly. Even when I drop in unannounced to the classes I see the toddlers being engaged by a caregiver in the proper way-- no tv, lots of arts, great (multiple) playspaces, nice outdoor area, wonderful location. This school has professional caregivers

This was a great place for our daughter to spend her initial years. There was great emphasis on leadership skills by making each child the leader of the day. The concept of a multi-cultural society was imbibed by asking parents from different cultures to speak on occasions important for the culture.
