Company Info

Tampopo Club, Inc. was founded in 2011. We started as a small in-home day care in West L.A. in 2000. From there, we moved to Las Vegas before settling in Orange County where we set up our current daycare in Irvine, CA in 2005.

Tampopo Club Day Care is a leading provider of high-quality child care with a focus on early-childhood education based on Montessori principals. We also place an emphasis on Japanese culture, tradition, and education.

In 2018, we launched our educational advisory services. By facilitating on-site daycares, we help employers and families better address the challenges of balancing work and family life.

We strive to:

  • Nurture each child’s emotional well-being, unique talents, and draw out their full potential.
  • Support companies, families and religious organizations through strong partnerships.
  • Collaborate with employers to build family-friendly workplaces.
  • Create a work environment that encourages professionalism, growth, and diversity by raising motivation and morale through employee support.


To provide employees with the best work-life balance possible by:

  • Raising up healthy, happy kids through a variety of life experiences.
  • Constantly striving and thinking of what we can do to provide children with the best future possible.
  • Building our mission through the eyes of children, keeping their best in mind.
  • Teaching and respecting Japanese culture, values, and discipline.

Why Us?

  1. We provide detailed feedback on each child through careful observation of their health, how they are doing emotionally, as well as what they are showing interest in.
  2. We have high expectations for our staff which leads to high quality care for the children under our watch.
  3. Our staff pours love into the children we care for.
  4. We take care of business owners by paying careful attention to on-site risk management.
  5. Our services have been completely designed with the working parent in mind.
  6. Our headquarter staff is there for you. We have a wealth of knowledge and respond quickly to support on-site staff’s need.

Our Dream

With a total of 17 years of experience in early-childhood education, we create the ideal environment for working parents by providing them with the mental and physical support they need by assisting them in raising children with the skills necessary to be successful not just in today’s world but also as a well-rounded human being.

We can make the future of society better by providing a healthy environment for the mind and body of working parents. The mood is already right in society to create a future where it is even easier to balance work with raising a family. 10 years from now, it will be normal to see strip malls and other multi-tenant buildings with day cares in them.
