Nestled among tall oak and pine trees, St. Francis Preschool has been serving families in the North Bay Area since 1967. A safe environment, both physically and emotionally, is provided where children are given the opportunity to become curious learners who are socially competent, cooperative, self-reliant, motivated, confident, and considerate.
St. Francis Preschool provides morning classes for children beginning at age 2 years, 9 months ( 3 by December 1st), afternoon Pre-K enrichment classes, Parent/Child classes for children who are 2 by December 1st, and a summer program. All of our programs focus on encouraging children's social, emotional, physcial, and cognitive development.
Daily activities include art, music and movement, literature, natural and physical science, and pre-reading and pre-math experiences. The spacious playground, which includes a safe, rubberized surface, provides opportunities for imaginative and vigorous play. A positive approach to discipline has always been used.
St. Francis Preschool is a private, non-profit organization. We are an inclusive community that welcomes families of all beliefs, races, cultures, and backgrounds. Although we are part of the St. Francis Episcopal Church, religion is not a part of the curriculum. For those interested, there is an optional chapel program for Preschoolers and their families before school on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
