St. Luke’s Center

Serving Toddlers and Preschoolers

Located between Nob Hill and Pacific Heights, the St. Luke’s Center provides a warm and engaging atmosphere for young minds to learn and grow. Teachers endeavor endlessly to create a developmentally appropriate environment where a love of learning is nurtured and encouraged to thrive. Children are encouraged to be the leaders of their own learning and are provided with the necessary tools to become independent, empathetic and capable thinkers. Families are also provided an abundance of resources and are encouraged to collaborate with staff to provide the best possible learning experience for the whole family.
