Lake Merritt Child Care Center: 250 12th Street Opening

On July 6, 2021, the Lake Merritt Child Care Center officially opened its new location at 250 12th Street in Oakland.

Our gleaming new facility is 7500 sq. feet with spacious classrooms, a fun-filled new playground, a secure parking lot, and a driveway for safe drop-off and pick-up.  Our students and parents love our new location and we’ve received many compliments already.

In addition to a new location, we offer innovative teaching programs designed to prepare the students’ school readiness.  Our temporary hours of operation are 8:00 am to 5:30 pm.  All teachers and staff are fully vaccinated.  However, we still require face coverings for all adults in school settings.  For children over the age of 2, we are highly recommending the use of face coverings.

For more information and to schedule a tour, please call 510-834-3399.
