Welcome to Just Like Home Day Care (JLHDC)

JLHDC was formed in 2008 in San Mateo as a response to the need for a preschool or kindergarten that focuses on play and the development of social skills of young infants. Since then, we have developed a reputation for providing superior care in a safe, stimulating environment where children up to the age of 4 are encouraged to freely express themselves.

At JLHDC it is our mission to provide Infants and Toddlers with age development appropriate activities and materials in a safe, loving environment where they are free to explore and learn.

JLHDC is a play-based program. we believe children learn more with caregivers at a young age and not with teachers. Your child will continue to explore, grow and create relationships with others. They will learn to become confident learners as they learn to respect others and feel loved.

The first 3 years of your child's life are the most crucial where he/she will go through some incredible developemental stages. We love the expressions they all make when they know they have achieved something it just brings the biggest smiles to there little faces.
At JLHDC, your child will participate in developmentally-appropriate activities throughout the day. We keep a daily journal of what your child did each day as we know It is important you know what your child ate, how many times he/she went the bathroom, and any naps.
