  • Carmel Country Plaza in Carmel Valley
  • Carmel Mountain Plaza in Carmel Mountain Ranch
  • Lomas Santa Fe Plaza in Solana Beach

At the end of each month, one teacher will be randomly selected to receive a classroom visit by the KyXy morning show personality, “Little” Tommy Sablan from the Jeff & Jer Showgram. ​​The honored teacher will also receive an engraved plaque and a gift certificate to the participating center closest to their school location.
