About Us


Wine Country Day Preschool is...

     WCD is a family-owned private preschool that has offered high-quality early childhood education in the Napa Valley since 1982.  We believe that children should be given the opportunity to experience learning in a relaxed, fun, nurturing and supportive environment that contributes to the development of the whole child: socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.  

      Our curriculum includes language development, science and nature, music and movement, arts and crafts, math and reading readiness.  The ongoing learning takes place through activities that challenge and encourage each child, promoting the belief in their unique capabilities and reinforcing self worth, thus contributing to the development of a healthy self-concept.


     WCD embraces the most current practices in Early Childhood Education and values whole child development: social, emotional, physical and cognitive.  Learning takes place through activities which encourage and challenge a child’s potential.  Our teachers are committed to providing a safe and loving environment in which children explore, discover, learn and play.


     WCD and its staff believe that children learn best in a supportive, loving, home-like environment where they are encouraged by caring adults who observe and learn beside them.  We believe that children should be given time, appropriate materials, and engage in meaningful interactions to develop intellectually and emotionally.

     Our teachers and staff are advocates for children who love and encourage them to develop academically and socially.  As they listen and learn with each child, they assess and guide the learning process and empower children to make sense of their world.


     WCD aspires to meet the needs of ALL children and families.  We provide care and developmental stimulation through play-based academic growth opportunities for young children.  It is our aim to work with each family to create the best possible environment for their child while in our program.  The staff focuses on the total and unique growth and development of each child.  We promote:
