The Lands End School’s Infant program prioritizes building trusting relationships with the children and their families. We encourage the child’s autonomy by providing age appropriate materials and activities that spark the babies’ natural curiosity and the freedom to discover and explore the things around them. Our indoor and outdoor environments are designed to aid infant development through its safe and accessible setup. The Infant program’s daily schedule is custom to the differently aged infants to allow them to sleep, eat, and play whenever they want!

Maria Estrella Martinez
Lead Infant Teacher
Family:I am proud to have raised two good, beautiful and bright children. My son, Manuel is a student at UCSB. My daughter is a student at UCLA.
Education: I graduated from Ventura Community College with an A.A. in Child Development Studies. I have taken further Child Development Studies at San Francisco Community College and have over 32 units in Child Development.
Child Care Careers – 1 year.
Lands End School – since 2006.
Hobbies and passions: I love teaching, caring, and working with children. I share with them my happy and positive smiling personality. Their education and development is my greatest priority. Children and families deserve professional services. Other than that, one of my hobbies is clothes shopping and decoration. I value family greatly.
I’m Michelle and I have been a teacher at The Lands End School for a year. I am a certified Assistant teacher, majoring in Psychology, with my core Early Childhood Education credits from CCSF. I was born and raised here in San Francisco and am of Native Hawaiian descent. My culture is a huge part of my life and I value family above all else. My 17 nieces and nephews are where I began my personal childcare experience starting over 20 years ago, while my professional experience began as a substitute teacher. All my life, teaching has been a passion of mine and I believe that children are so important to the future of our little blue planet.
Apart from being in the classroom I travel often and spend my time operating a variety of companies and businesses. In 2021 I was made President of a Non-Profit Corporation that deals with clean water accessibility called Anti Nuclaire.
More importantly than all of that, my hobbies and other passions include a specialty in designing delicate Asian cakes, also having a deep interest in Anime, K-dramas and collecting rare plants. I also enjoy sushi & matcha green tea lattes
