After two great years on Waverley Street, DayOne Baby Palo Alto has closed. We thank all of the families and partners we worked with over the years. We are especially grateful to our instructors who helped bring the DayOne Baby mission to life for so many families. Our instructors are thoughtful and engaging and frequently form close relationships with our customers. We wanted to share the contact information for our instructors if you would like to get in touch with them.
We look forward to seeing you at our flagship store in San Francisco!
