About The New Haven

We are taking the best of our new normal to solve the needs of the young growing families of San Diego. To bring balance to the reality of parenting and the working world while creating meaningful relationships with people who get it.



A beautiful environment is key to creativity. Whether you make one your own, or visit occasionally, there is a desk waiting for you that says you can focus here.


Calm, serene, whimsical. The children's rooms are inspired by the traditions of Maria Montessori & Reggio Amelia and perfectly suited to a childhood full of wonder.

The New Haven is a growing community of families who are looking for friendships, working partnerships or just a practical solution to the challenge of working remotely with children at home. Our community is built by working alongside one another, breaking bread together during the lunch break, and gathering for other member events that support families and working professionals in our neighborhood.

Our Culture

A Haven is a safe refuge, an idyllic corner of the world. We are creating a space where every member of the family is welcome and supported. We are looking for members who desire to be participants in a community, building relationships with the other members and open to finding ways to serve one another. We value compassion and humility amongst our members and staff.

Our Events

A real community is built over the feast table where we break bread at lunch everyday & during other occasional family feasts. Our events are designed to serve our members as well as the local Point Loma business ecosystem with workshops, networking and social opportunities.
