Hi, we have been with the JCC for 5 years (2 lids) and love it. Its a few blocks from you. Its not religious at all, diverse community, play based but really cares about ECE. Kids thrive there and do great when they go on to K

We've been happy with Little Elephant Too! which is on McGee and University. Montessori school with longtime teaching staff and smaller-sized mixed age single classroom. Maybe a little far to walk but definitely bikeable from Shattuck and Vine.

I highly recommend Montessori Family School.

We really like the ECC at the Berkeley School - on Francisco just west of Shattuck. 

Golestan School!!!   It's "Persian Emersion" for preschoolers (my son is in 1-2 grade) but who cares? (my child is Anglo/Chinese) Half the parents are Persian, the rest from everywhere.  Progressive and European style program.  

My family has been very happy with New School, which is at Cedar and Bonita.  Play-based school with lots of field trips and happy kids.
