Yikes Tikes! provides a high-quality, inclusive early learning environment for toddlers and preschoolers. Our Reggio Emilia-inspired program allows each child to reach his or her full potential through curiously engaging with the world.

At Yikes Tikes!, we present children with an expansive range of perspectives by welcoming children of varied developmental abilities, ethnicities, languages, and economic backgrounds. We combine a range of age groups from 2 years to 4 years, 9 months, in our classroom, helping children develop empathy, understanding, acceptance and respect for the differences of others. Yikes Tikes! takes its inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach to preschool education, which gives parents, teachers and children equal voice in the learning experience. Yikes Tikes! teaches children self-confidence, a sense of belonging, and appreciation for personal uniqueness, emulating and celebrating the diversity of the Bay Area and the world beyond.

Our staff is comprised of early childhood education specialists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and behavior therapists who work as a team to provide rich learning environments for Yikes Tikes! children. Our parent cooperative model makes Yikes Tikes! available to member families at no cost, providing early childhood education, parent education, and community support.  Our state-of-the-art program allows each child to reach his or her full potential through curiously engaging with the world. We recognize each child as the primary agent of his or her own learning, bringing parents, children, teachers, and the environment together to set the stage for lifelong learning and school success for all children.
