The Oakland school resides in Rockridge on Broadway just South of Highway 24. We are in a sweet neighborhood with much to explore, including the secret steps that take us up the hill behind the school and into Lake Temescal park or the few blocks to College Avenue with its bookstores, markets, garden stores and the BART station. We visit “Triangle Park”, play in the courtyard of the local church grounds and get on BART to visit the farmer’s market in downtown and the dinosaurs at Lawrence Hall of Science.
The outdoor space is an extension of the classroom and children have access to move freely indoors and out for the majority of the day and projects often extend outside as well. Our diverse and talented teaching team brings their unique interests to the classroom on a daily basis. Children can expect to have regular and frequent exposure to science, gardening, music and singing, yoga, storytelling, cooking and baking as well as the myriad projects that emerge from the unique interests of the community of children throughout the year.
