The Children's Center at Caltech, a non-profit organization, has been providing high quality early education and care for children ages six months through five years since 1972. Using a constructivist approach, the CCC implements a science-based curriculum to nurture the natural curiosity of children as a foundation for life-long learning.

Since 1985, Growing Place (GP) has been recognized as a leader in early childhood education for our pedagogical approach, developing teachers, and working with children and parents. Our NAEYC accreditation and our established dialogue with Reggio Children® were among the reasons we were selected to operate the Santa Monica Early Childhood Lab School. Our three campuses in Santa Monica serve children as young as three months through six years.
