We understand that choosing your child’s educational setting is a decision full of stress and complexity. Early childhood - and early adolescence - are critical developmental times in the life of every child, and as a parent, we can lose sleep over making the "best" possible decisions regarding our child's education. 
Our heartfelt mission is to help families breathe a little easier. Our goal is to support, educate, and connect your family with schools that match your individual values, and we also wish to empower you in feeling knowledgeable about the full range of your educational choices. Looking at public, private, charter, or specialized programming, we strive to support all our families in finding a best fit to promote your child’s success within their educational setting -  and do our best to bring you a little piece of mind at the same time.

We serve a wide range of families with a variety of values, needs, and concerns — all with the common goal to support their child's success in school. Please contact us if we can be of any help to you and your family.

We focus on serving families looking for Preschool - Middle School settings in Oakland, Berkeley, WCCUSD, San Leandro, and other neighboring districts.
