Vallejo may not have the vibrant downtown and shopping of Oakland or Berkeley, but affordable house prices and a scenic commute by ferry to San Francisco are drawing people to this area.

While the town has a bit of a bad rep, there are a lot of old, beautiful neighborhoods and some great early child care options in Vallejo that can easily rival others in the Bay Area.

Finding the right place for your children can be hard. Their experiences at this young age will impact them for the rest of their lives.

“Several decades of research clearly demonstrate that high-quality, developmentally appropriate early childhood programs produce short- and long-term positive effects on children’s cognitive and social development.” – NAEYC

That’s why it’s important to find somewhere that supports holistic development and helps kids develop key emotional and social skills.
