Preschool recommendations South West Berkeley


We just bought a home near San Pablo Park. Talk to me about preschool options nearby? My son is 3.5.

Thank you for any info or experiences!

Look into Aquatic Park School on Heinz near Berkeley Bowl West.  Our two boys (5 and 2.5) are there now and we love the school, the teachers, the community.  The kids spend much of the day outside in a wonderful outdoor area with lots of open-ended play structures, garden, sand box.  The teachers are creative, thoughtful, nurturing and well-supported by the administration and the parent community.  The day is structured but activities are open ended and child-driven.  If you have further questions I'd be happy to answer them offline.

We live near San Pablo Park as well. My son who is 4 goes to Mi Mundo Preschool, which he loves! and about a mile from the park My younger one (11month) is scheduled to attend Aquatic Park Preschool coming fall and that is less than 10 minutes walk from the park.
