TK and K recommendations near Albany

We just moved to east bay and are looking for a TK and K school for my son. Any recommendations? I prefer a school setting rather than a small center at a house. We live in Albany, so El Cerrito, Albany and Berkeley are all good. I tried Nia House but no luck. Looking forward to hearing more ideas!

It sounds like you’d be interested in a Montessori program since you considered Nia House. We also live in Albany and have been happy for many years at Montessori Family School. They have an Early Childhood campus in Berkeley which offers Preschool through Kindergarten as well as an El Cerrito campus which is TK - 8. Both campuses are wonderful but you might want to check out both as they can feel quite different given the different locations and ages they serve. Such a lovely gem of a school! Good luck!

Honestly, being in the Albany school district is why people pay so much to live in Albany for. I'm just blocks from Albany and my partner and I have discussed moving to get our kids into the public school there. My kid is entering K too.
