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!

Marybeth Peralta

Infant Teacher
Prior to teaching I dedicated my early 20’s specializing in Feline medicine. In my 7th year in the veterinary field I decided it was time to broaden my horizons. I started one of my first businesses, Pet Watch Medical, and also ventured my journey into a childcare career in 2018! In the beginning I started out assisting teachers at pre-schools around San Francisco, one of them being the Lands End School! I joined TLES as an Infant teacher in 2019.
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
