ScuttleBugs Child Development Center in San Jose

Our child care center in San Jose is more than just a daycare. Founded in 2011, it has successfully navigated the path from start up, through the first formative years, to surpassing a major milestone and celebrating our 12th Anniversary in 2023!
We believe our tailored Reggio Emilia and Emergent Curriculum approach to early childhood education, which draws from global ECE leaders such as Europe and Australia, truly is unique.

Facility Safety

  • In addition to secure access to the facility, we have an additional layer of security from our foyer with another checkpoint where key-card access is required to enter areas where children are present.
  • The facility is equipped with a “lockdown” mechanism and associated procedures
  • We created the whole playground with soft fall zones for those times when kids tumble.
  • We have safe, IPEMA certified, educationally designed play structures.
  • Our 8ft opaque fence provides a secure and private playground for the children.
  • Protection from the sun at an early age pays great dividends in later life. We’ve installed permanent shade-sails over a large area of the playground providing much needed sun protection. (And of course we lather our little ones in sunscreen before they go outside.) Read more about sun protection on our blog.
  • The children’s bathrooms are equipped with child size toilets and basins, which further benefit self-help skills and potty training – when the time is right.
