About Me

Cookies n' Dirt is owned and opperated by me, Christian Wood. I have worked with young children for the past 20 years . I  am an award winning preschool  teacher for Bright Hoizons Marin Day Schools recognized for outstanding world cirriculum, I owned my own preschool program in San Francisco, and helped start/direct a childcare center for UCSF.  I am also a Mom that knows what it's like to leave your child in someone else's care. I take up to 6 children at any given time and have stellar references from all around the bay area.  I run a flexible program designed for the parent who needs a break or who works part time. I am open Monday - Thursday from 8:30- 5:00 and take children starting at about 14 months of age... but I am always flexible! I provide all children with 2 meals and 2 snacks a day.
I currently serve Families from Tiburon, Mill Valley, Corte Madera and Novato. Parents from Novato that work in the city like that they can pick up and drive home with their children instead of waiting to get all the way back home.

Cookies n' Dirt focuses on problem solving, decision making and self-help, while promoting interpersonal communications.  These are key elements which contribute to the child’s development, self esteem and confidence. We also learn through in depth studies and projects but mostly through art.
Cookies n' Dirt children learn about people of the world through celebrating many different customs and traditions- one of the areas of learning that I am most passionate about.
Cookies n' Dirt kids are not confined to a classroom, home, or two block radius. We go out and explore!

Cookies n Dirt was published in the Marin Child Care council's guide to High Quality Child Care. I also write a monthly article for the Southern Marin Mother's club and was chosen to be a part of Michelle Obama's Lets move program.
