We specialize in early care and education for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. We have an infant center, preschool, and a private kindergarten. We are open year round and offer full and part-time programs. Voted best child care in Napa Valley, our business started in 1993. Our teachers are college trained and have CPR and First Aid training as well as fingerprint clearance. We have a few openings and you can take a tour of our school by appointment.
This dump is about to be shut down by the state. 70+ citations by the licensing authority in the last few years, ranging from safety violations of the building and grounds, to children wandering off the grounds alone and unsupervised, to teachers not having adequate or timely health and criminal background information, to children undressing each other and touching inappropriately unnoticed by teachers, to sanitation violations. Apparently the center has established a track record of filing false child abuse complaints against parents who lodge complaints about the center with the licensing authority. Center is due in court in October for a hearing to determine if their license should be reinstated following a three year probationary period, during which they've received several more citations. All information was published online recently. Google up the Children's Cottage, and see the records for yourself. Not a healthy place for anyone's kids. Your kids would be better off playing in traffic.

Children's Cottage has been providing excellent early care and education in Napa since 1993. The teachers really love working there and it shows. They serve children from 6 weeks to 6 years and even have a private kindergarten on Solano Avenue about 10 minutes away from the main school in Alta Heights.
