Worry-free parents are happier and more productive.

We provide child care and early childhood education for families and businesses where they work.

Working parents have access to exceptional child care right at the workplace or somewhere nearby their home or office, while employers keep their best workers - and attract bright new people - with a valuable benefit. All of our solutions allow employees to focus on their jobs knowing that their loved ones are being cared for and educated in a safe, nurturing way.

We work with employers to customize child care solutions to fit the needs of the workplace. We are an extension of our clients’ brand and reflect the company culture and workforce demographics.

We also offer the industry's most geographically comprehensive child care benefit solutions. Our size and scope guarantee a level of service that is unmatched in the child care industry. Our nationwide child care network lets us offer what no one else can: a consistently positive experience for employee families that's close to where they live and work - wherever they live and work.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Children's Creative Learning Centers (San Francisco, CA).


    Phone interview, then an in-person "Behavioral" where you spend a couple of hours (yes unpaid!) in a classroom. Then finally the long and awkward in-person panel - they use a "Lominger's" interview format. I would suggest looking up what that is before you go in so you are prepared for the kind of conversation you will encounter!
