We are an after school childcare program dedicated to serving Palo Alto families since the 1990's. Our teaching methods are recognized throughout our community as the most valuable and effective way to discover and enhance students' talents. We value academic competence but stress equal importance on developing emotional intelligence—self care, awareness, compassion, and drive. Contact us to learn more.
Our mission is to serve every student with excellence. We cater to every student's unique needs. This learning center promotes positive attitudes and support, where learning is maximized through high expectations, accountability, and the collaborative efforts of faculty, students, and families. We wholeheartedly believe that it takes a whole village to raise a child.
It takes the combined efforts of faculty and community to help our children grow into successful adults. Join our stellar team of teachers, teacher assistants, and drivers to directly support our program! We also organize volunteering events throughout the year where MSLC Parents and Students volunteer their time to help the community.
We offer After School and Preschool programs that are known for focusing equally on academic achievement and child development. Our students practice responsibility, self-management, social awareness, and above all, kindness. Find out more about our programs by clicking the buttons below. Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year is open and ongoing. Prospective parents, please fill out the contact form to let us know your interest and we'll reach out with more information.
Registration for 2018 Summer Camp is open! Join us for 9 sessions of exciting activities geared towards enhancing your child's Chinese-speaking skills. After a year of Chinese workbooks, this is a great opportunity to practice speaking the language while picking up new skills in cooking and photography, exploring Bay Area museums, and embarking on a food adventure.

Why are we named after the mustard seed? There is a Bible verse [Matthew 17:20] that reads, "...if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain,'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
