Infant Programs

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!

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.

Hello I’m teacher Mary. I am a San Francisco Native. I have been teaching at the Lands end school since April 2019. Throughout my life I have dedicated alot of my time taking care of children including kids with special needs. I started my child care career assisting teachers at many different pre-schools around the Bay Area in 2018. Outside the classroom I spend my time volunteering at the SPCA, Muttsville and at Aquarium of the bay. Before I started teaching I was a Vet technician specializing in care for cats for 7 years.
