Mission Statement

Telegraph Hill Cooperative Nursery School is a parent participation preschool that provides a happy first school experience for children ages 2-5. Children learn self-confidence and respect for others through play in a safe, nurturing, and fun environment. We strive to develop creative kids with the socialization skills and self- confidence to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. We educate parents on child development and demonstrate positive and respectful techniques for working with children. Our extended community reaches both the school and our neighborhood.

Description

Telegraph Hill Cooperative Nursery School is a parent participation preschool that provides a happy first school experience for children ages two to five years old.

The Telegraph Hill Cooperative Nursery School was founded in October 1954 to provide a healthy, safe, and stimulating environment in which children can develop socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. A cooperative nursery school is a nonprofit, nonsectarian, democratic organization where each family shares in the planning and operation of the school. Parents participate in the program on a rotating basis, serving as assistants to a professional nursery school teacher and staff. The efforts of parents and their direct involvement during the school day make parent participation nursery schools a unique educational endeavor. At our school, all of the administrative functions, maintenance, and fundraising are performed by the parent members rather than by paid staff members. Our school is a state-licensed child-care facility and a non-profit 501c3 corporation.
