More About Regard


Enrollment & Admissions

Regard Preschool offers parents options for their child’s schedule. Children may be enrolled three mornings each week or up to five full days. Regard is open year-round. Children may begin their enrollment throughout the year, when openings are available in our groups. 

Regard is licensed by the Sate of California to care for twenty seven children, ages 2 years thru 6 years. 

Many children begin at Regard as young two year olds and grow in our program until they are ready for kindergarten.  

Please contact our school to arrange a visit to our campus.


Our unique small school environment allows us to provide your child with maximum consideration as an individual while in our care. We look after your child’s health and safety and present a planned program proven to be developmentally sound, educationally beneficial, nurturing and joyful. We strive to maintain a warm and enriching experience for your child and to be mindful of your needs as a family.

Our Pre-Kindergarten program at Regard has a reputation of excellence. Our Lead Teachers have Bachelor Degrees in Early Education and Elementary Education. Our school director and two of our senior teachers have previously taught in San Jose elementary schools and in Los Gatos. We understand  tools children will need to navigate kindergarten and beyond. We are delighted to build a foundation for the best possible academic beginning. Equally important to us at Regard, is that children learn to be kind and compassionate towards themselves and their community. 

What Parents Say About Regard

“Regard was an integral part of our family for 5 years. We chose Regard because of their emphasis on developing the whole child and supporting the values important to our family: trustworthines, respect, responsibility, caring and fairness. The director has selected the highest quality teaching staff that provides a caring, loving and fun environment. Our children truly loved each and every teacher. Music enriched their time at Regard, as did Yoga, Bike Days and diving in the leaves on fall afternoons. Regard really felt like a partnership between our family and the school. We could not have found a better start to our children’s learning. While Regard’s academics gave them a nice boost when joining private elementary school, it is the character foundation for which I am most grateful and the care and love with which these values were taught.”  ~ Allison M.

”Regard mimics the attributes of healthy relationships, households, and societies. There are expectations and norms. There are rewards and consequences. There is a schedule and there is spontaneity, too. My daughters have developed into self-assured, curious, and playful girls because they could rely on the structures, routines, and relationships promoted and nurtured at Regard. Quite simply--our family’s experience at Regard has made us better because we had Regard to model after when times were tough or when as parents we felt stretched thin. My girls have a wonderful foundation because of the commitment of the Regard teachers to each child.“ ~ Jennifer A.                             

”Thank you for the 8 years of love, support, patience, encouragement, educational excellence, and overall sense of security that my three children were in great hands each day.”  ~ Holly D.
