Mission


For over 100 years, St. Elizabeth's Day Home has been dedicated to providing quality early education that offers all children and families the first foundation for lifelong development.

 

A Child's Home Away From Home

St. Elizabeth's Day Home is a pioneer in early childhood education and was the first childcare center of its kind when the Sisters of the Holy Family established it in downtown San Jose in 1907.

Today, St. Elizabeth's Day Home serves children (ages 1 to 5) from a diverse range of cultural and economic backgrounds by fostering healthy social, emotional, intellectual and physical development.

Every child deserves a supportive environment in the context of family, community, and society.

  • Involves parents and guardians in designing a continuum of social and academic growth for the children
  • Emphasizes the importance of the first five years of learning
