Michelle's Backyard is a home-based Preschool & Daycare located in North Redondo Beach. We are an Outdoor, multi-age program focusing on learning through Play and tailored to the specific interests and developmental levels of our children.
We partner with parents, teachers and community to empower the whole child. Through creativity, imagination, problem solving, critical thinking, social responsibility, self assurance, and independence we strive to stay connected to the children through empathy and understanding. Childhood is a precious time of discovery and development. Children today face an increasing pressure to grow up too fast, depriving them of fundamental early childhood experiences that help them to become successful adults. Michelle's Backyard is committed to preserving the experiences of childhood. We spend hours outdoors exploring, giggling, laughing and discovering the world around us. You will find us regularly covered in mud, chalk, paint or water and laughing as we splash through warm days in water tables, pools and slip n slides. Our atmosphere is relaxed and child-centered.

It is our belief that children learn best when they are interested in what they are learning. We observe children, plan activities that will expand their thinking and allow for language, literacy, pre-mathematical concepts and other pre-academic skills to develop. Learn More
At Michelle's Backyard we take extra care in making children feel safe, comfortable and loved. The multi-age setting provides a rich and natural environment for children to develop social and emotional skills. Our curriculum is play based, and focuses on the current interests and developmental levels of our children. We partner with parents and believe that emotional development is the core of proper brain development. We have embraced the philosophy of nonviolent parenting, which stresses the importance of nurturing emotional intelligence through empathy and conection. Our goal is for MB graduates to enter kindergarten as self-confident, effective problem solvers.
We believe in developing the whole child. Our enrichment program includes yoga, music and cooking and more. All enrichment happens at Michelle's Backyard
during the children’s regular hours. We do try to venture out into the community and take field trips 2 to 3 times per year.
