"We have two older children, so this is our third daycare experience as parents.  This is by far the best daycare we have ever been to and I do not think that calling it a "daycare" is appropriate.  It's a second family… He is eager for his first hug each day and for the SOMA routine.  It's a very loving environment...having seen other daycares, I feel very confident that he is absorbing so much because of the consistent and patient approach..."

Our mission

Our goal at SOMA Daycare is to empower children to be life-long learners.  That is why we have created a fun, educational environment geared towards stimulating children cognitively, physically, and socially. 

We are committed to providing a safe, loving environment where children develop their social competencies, build self-esteem, strengthen physical capacities, and learn to explore the world through their many senses. 

Transparency - We remain the only daycare in San Francisco that allows Parental access to our cameras so you can see and hear everything going on.*

Brightwheel - Receive real-time photos, easy messaging to teachers, and feeds of daily activities so you can stay connected with your child’s progress and developmental milestones through this app.
