San Francisco

The San Francisco school resides on Mission Street between Bernal Heights and Glen Park. It is the perfect setting for children to appreciate all that the city has to offer. We are steps from three MUNI lines that can take us to the beach or to Civic Center. We have a BART station in nearby Glen Park that allows us to visit Fairy Land in Oakland and Children’s Discovery Museum in San Jose. We are equally likely to be on foot exploring the neighborhoods or the Canyon in Glen Park, the plant nursery on Bayshore or one of several local parks.

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 movement exploration, music and singing, yoga, storytelling and story dictation, cooking and baking as well as the myriad projects that emerge from the unique interests of the community of children throughout the year.

  • How does the enrollment process work?

    Open houses are schedule for monthly Saturdays between September and January. After attending an open house, you may submit an application any time before the cut off (one week after the final open house).
    The next step in the process is inviting applicants to join a parent learning tour on a typical morning.
    Finally, we offer available spots on a common notification date in mid-March agreed upon by the majority of SF independent preschools.
    Families who accept enrollment will be invited for AM playdates on all Fridays in July, giving children an opportunity to explore, connect and build trust with the school community within a time frame that is most appropriate and beneficial to a positive and confident transition.

  • Can I come visit the school?

    Open Houses on Saturdays is when we open the school for interested families. It is a deal to have strangers watching you, so we only do that in February for those folks who have submitted applications and are moving through the enrollment process. That way, we get to talk about having “a whole bunch of visitors for a few weeks” with the kids and they are ready to welcome you! The rest of the year, the school is theirs.
