We are a licensed, large family daycare located in Benicia, CA that specializes in quality care and early childhood learning. We are licensed for 12 children with two teachers. We provide a secure, home-like environment where your child will be safe, loved and nurtured. Our program offers a multifaceted early childhood education curriculum designed for infants as young as three months and children up to six years of age. Here at Creative Tots children learn through hands on experience where they become curious learners through play-based activities.
Infants (0-12 months)
Our infant program is for our youngest Tots . Our focus for this group is love, warmth and care. We generally only have 1-2 children this age so they have individualized care.
Toddlers (12-36 months)
Our toddler program is for children under 3 years of age. The focus for this group is to foster happiness, fun and to develop language and social skills. We generally have 4 children in this group.
Preschoolers (3-5 years)
Our preschool program is for children aged 3-5 years old. Our focus for this group is to foster imagination, social and cognitive skills and curiosity in learning. In a world where children are often hurried we believe children learn best through hands on experience.
After schoolers (5-6 years). We also offer after school care for children in Kindergarten & 1st grade.
Our teachers are dedicated early childhood professionals with degrees in child development. They love and study the field and know what children need to excel in their social, emotional, cognitive and language development. As educators they play an important role in shaping and influencing the children’s learning and environment.
Owner- Amanda Verbis
I absolutely adore children! I began teaching in the Early Childhood Education field 12 years ago. My journey began when I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Child Development. During that time I taught children ranging from age 1-6 years at a private preschool in Walnut Creek for 7 years. I fell in love with the field and continued my education by receiving a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education at Saint Mary’s in 2014. In my personal time I love spending time with my husband and two daugthers, Audrina & Gabriella. We enjoy taking trips to Tahoe and are big theme park fans.
