History, Philosophy & Goals

Our school began in November 1983. First located in Diamond Heights, Lynn designed the program while completing her MA in Early Childhood Education. She put theory to practice to develop a quality program, with a fun learning environment for children, teachers, and families.

The Preschool has been located in sunny Baja Noe Valley since 1988. We now offer a morning preschool program, four days a week (Monday through Thursday from 8:00 to noon). Our program has always been special in many ways. We offer a personalized mixed-age, small group setting with the best that both home and school have to offer.

With limited enrollment, a great teaching team, and an excellent adult-child ratio, we are able to maintain caring relationships and give each child the individualized attention on which all children thrive.

Our indoor and outdoor environments are safe and offer both stimulating and calming activities so that each child feels secure to explore, socialize, play, create, learn & grow.

The major goals of our program are as follows:

To provide a secure environment where each child’s physical and emotional needs are met

To cultivate each child’s sense of exploration and love of learning so that s/he will have a positive attitude toward school & learning

To nurture each child’s self esteem

To offer the opportunity for successful social relationships and fun with friends while learning about self and the world around us

To develop in each child many avenues for creative expression
