Jim Grisham, Co-Founder
I graduated from California State University San Bernardino in 1972 and received my teaching credential the following year. I hold a Lifetime Teaching Credential from the State of California and I am a state-qualified Infant-Toddler and Preschool Teacher. My teaching career has spanned over four decades.
In 1989, I joined my wife, Sylvia, in creating Carlsbad Village Children's Center. Over the ensuing years we have developed a unique program that has led to hundreds of healthy and happy children. We value cultural literacy, the family and community, and the individual uniqueness of each child. I have found that I learn as much from the children as they do from me.
It is indeed my pleasure to welcome you to Children's Villages. We have created a one-of-a-kind environment for your children. We have built a natural playscape to help your children appreciate the beauty of the natural world. I hope that we can enhance your job of parenting by providing you with a safe and nurturing setting where your children will discover the joy in learning.
