HUNGRY CATERPILLARS FAMILY DAYCARE
Preparing for the brightest future, Hungry Caterpillars is pioneering the field of childcare through our dedication and commitment to the specific needs of every child we are entrusted to provide care for. Our facilities are licensed by the state of California, and allowed to care for a maximum capacity of twelve to fourteen children, depending on the ages of the children enrolled at any given time. This smaller setting lets us prioritize careful focus on each individual child in order to really get to know, teach, and bond with each other. We do not take the responsibility lightly and provide each child the enhanced attention which allows for a unique educational experience designed to enhance intellectual growth. We welcome all prospective parents looking to possibly enroll their children for a visit anytime.

Note: If your child is under 6 months of age and is still napping three times a day, then the infant schedule does not apply to you. Feeding time will be every three hours since the last bottle. Naps will be every hour and a half to two hours. For example, if you bring your child to daycare at 8:15 am, and he/she woke up at 6:00 am and was fed at home, then the baby will be swaddled and put down for a nap. As soon as he/she wakes up from their nap then that will be the first feeding time of the day.
In addition to providing our little ones the highest standard of quality care, Hungry Caterpillars also provides fresh, daily, home-cooked meals for lunch, while ensuring that everything we utilize in the kitchen is organic and of the highest quality. Alongside our lunch service, we provide parents a template (pictured above) specifying exactly what we have planned for our weekly menu and do our utmost to ensure the children never eat the same thing twice within a two-week span. Every meal we provide will contain a healthy, well-rounded combination of proteins, grains, dairy and fruits/vegetables to ensure the children have a nutritional diet which provides them the energy and strength they need.
Hungry Caterpillars Has Changed Locations!
Hungry Caterpillars Family Daycare has found a much more spacious apartment, which also happens to be categorized as a commercial space, in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. The unit is much bigger than the limited space we were provided with when we initially opened our daycare. This additional space will allow for the implementation of a genuine daycare setting and preschool elements to help us focus on preparing the children under our care for their future education.
We hope you are all as excited as we are with this move and hope to see you all at our newly refurbished location at 1901 Stockton Street!!
