For the fourth year in a row, Los Angeles Downtown News named Hope Street Friends the area’s “Best Daycare Center” in a list published July 18, 2014. Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP is a co-founder and sponsor of Hope Street Friends.
The center offers on-site care to children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. Opened in 2010 in partnership with O’Melveny & Myers and Oaktree Capital, Hope Street Friends was built to support working parents both at Munger Tolles and in the community. Leading child care provider Bright Horizons operates the center, which recently received accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children and has the capacity to serve 70 children.
Munger Tolles attorneys C. David Lee and Laura D. Smolowe serve on the Hope Street Friends board of directors.
