At Yikes Tikes CSLOT!, 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 5 years in our classroom, helping children develop empathy, understanding, acceptance and respect for the differences of others. Yikes Tikes CSLOT! takes its inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach to preschool education, which gives parents, other adults, and children equal voice in the learning experience. Yikes Tikes CSLOT! 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 speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, behavior therapists, and paraprofessionals who work as a team to provide a therapeutic learning environment for Yikes Tikes CSLOT! children. 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, other adults, and the environment together to set the stage for learning and success for all children.
