Babe's Running Start Preschool is focused on early-childhood education and letting kids have fun and develop social and emotional skills that will aid them later in life. All of these things are accomplished at Babe's through playing games, singing songs, and running around on the playground in addition to more more standard lessons in a variety of topics. Babe's is family-owned and -operated and has developed a reputation for top-notch childcare in Pacifica since its founding in 1983. The staff at Babe's believe it's okay for children to make mistakes as they learn academic and social lessons. One of the tenets of their teaching method is to never make students feel inadequate or incapable if academic work is not completed. Instead, they encourage students to reach their potential at their own pace. Babe's has a large facility, with two adjoining buildings containing several rooms each and a large common area in between. Classrooms are divided by age group, and there is a separate area for infants and toddlers.
