At Broadway Children's School of Oakland, our play-based programs reflect the belief that every child is unique and special, and we nurture and encourage that sense of individuality so that each child will develop within his or her own framework. In a caring and playful environment, we work to help each child build competency in the social, emotional, intellectual, and creative selves that make the whole child. We combine child-centered learning with parent enrichment, cultivating a committed community that offers families a bedrock of support, knowledge-sharing and friendship. We strive to serve a school community that reflects and celebrates the unique and beautiful diversity of the East Bay. It is a wonderful place to learn and grow together! Check out our stellar online reviews to see what parents have to say about our programs. 

Broadway Children's School of Oakland has been serving Bay Area families for over 70 years. Our community is strong, welcoming, and incredibly supportive. Broadway's professional team of early childhood educators is experienced, caring, collaborative and creative. We offer competitive pay and benefits to recruit and retain amazing teachers. We are a small 501(c)(3) community nonprofit organization that puts tuition dollars right back into our programs and community.
