Music, Art, & Dancing Brighten Their Days

Fun, creative, artistic enrichment activities, included in their daily program, vary your child’s days and offer opportunities to be expressive and learn new skills. Watch their confidence and creativity soar!

Unforgettable Visits From The Petting Zoo

When the animal van arrives, your child’s little face lights up! They meet, feed, and care for Stanley the micro cow, Oliver and Elliot the baby goats, Dolly and Toby the donkeys, and plenty more furry friends for the chance to learn about nature and responsibility.

Little Readers Thrive With A Library In Every Classroom

Literacy is an essential part of your child’s learning journey, and they’re off to a strong start with a cozy, welcoming space filled with beautiful books. Loving teachers read stories to little ones, and older children build their confidence reading solo.

Your Child Plays Outdoors Up To 2 Hours Every Day

Your child has space to run, jump, roam, and play in beautiful, age-appropriate playgrounds, where they climb structures, dig in the sand, or tend to plants in the garden, building motor skills and a connection to nature.

A Healthy Breakfast, Lunch, & Snack At No Extra Cost

A dedicated on-site cook prepares delicious, nutritious meals for your child every day, catering to any allergies or sensitivities and ensuring they stay energized for learning and growing. It’s all included, so you never have to worry about packing lunch.

I love that the center is a family vibe. I connected with so many different teachers, ones that my son didn’t even necessarily interact with. It’s just full of a bunch of loving people! All of the artwork that I got monthly was super advanced from what he had previously done… My son always was so happy to be there and wanted to bring things for his teachers and friends. Great job Children’s Choice Academy keep up the good work!

After hearing all good things about Children’s Choice Academy I finally switched my two kids over. I absolutely love everything they have to offer. My one year old who usually cries when I drop her off has not cried once when dropping her off. It shows me how much she loves it and how comfortable she is here. My two year old absolutely loves it and tells me how much fun she has.

Children's Choice Academy is the most reasonable and affordable daycare in San Diego. Every other daycare wanted way too much money. At Children's Choice Academy they are flexible with days, payment assistance, and vacation time. Highly recommend this daycare to any and everyone in need of daycare services.

My son has been very happy here. The teachers are always friendly and attentive, he is always playing happily when I pick him up, and he naps better here than at our previous daycare. He comes home in a good mood and worn out from a busy day of playing. I also appreciate the military discount. I’m glad we found this daycare when we moved to the area.
