Seeking preschool with opening in August

Hello. I am looking for a preschool that has openings for a 4 year old and 2 year old for August. Anyone know of any preschools with an opening? Looking in Oakland and Berkeley and surrounding areas. Thank you!

Hi Liffin4, I know that Montessori Family School has rolling admissions through the summer. Our kids attended, wonderful, long-established school right next to UC-Berkeley. Cheers! Josh

The Berkeley School Early Childhood Center

berkeley JCC has opening for 4s and 2s. We absolutely love it there, it's an amazing community and not religious at all, just culturally jewish but many non jewish kids go there


I just looked into a lot of preschools in oakland. These places had openings recently, not sure of their status now: Daisy Cdc, oakland garden school and a step ahead Montessori. There are lots of others that I didn’t contact, and some had part time spots too. 


Skytown Preschool is getting ready to re-open in Richmond in the Fall. I’m not sure if that’s too far for you but it’s a very special place for toddlers and preschoolers. My two boys went there and thrived. They loved the freedom to play outside as much as they like, dance class, yoga, and plenty of opportunities to get messy. The teachers see each child for who they are and support them through each developmental phase. It’s a parent cooperative, which allows parents to be a part of their child’s school life and learn more about early childhood behaviors and how to support them. After my boys graduated from Skytown, I’ve become the Admin and we’re offering tours this summer. Good luck with your search!


My 4-year old daughter has been going to The Berkeley School for the past two years.  We love it there!!  It's a truly amazing place.  Her teachers are all so kind, loving, and skilled at what they do.  I think they might have spots too.  The person to contact is Paula Farmer: pfarmer [at]  You can also checkout their website:  Good luck!!

Escuela Bilingüe Internacional is where my child went and he loved it.  It is play-based, nurturing, and the age of your children are the age when they can acquire another language even if you don’t speak it at home.  Contact them to see if they still have openings:

The Model School in Berkeley is accepting toddler and preschoolers as well.
