Looking for Preschools Pinole/ El Sobrante/Hercules

October 2006

I am looking for preschool recommendations in the Pinole/Hercules/El Sobrante area. I already know that La Casita is good, but would like some other ones to check out too. At this point I am looking at all types of programs, play based, Montissori etc. I am also interested in spanish/english instruction. Thanks


Small preschool in El Sobrante area

June 2006

We just moved to El Sobrante from Berkeley and are seeking a preschool for our 3 1/2 year old daughter for September. Ideally it would be small (or at least small classroom size), structured, and warm. She has done well in a Montessori teacher's daycare program for toddlers, so we would love to find something philosophically similar. Thanks


Preschools and coops in Hercules, Pinole, San Pablo?

January 2005

Happy New Year and I hope this post finds everyone well! I have a newly minted 3yr old and we are looking to move her from her current school in El Sobrante. Although we know they love her and that she is well cared for, we are not happy with some behaviors that she has picked up from a new younger group of kids that have joined her class. She is now the ''oldest'' and we are seeing some MAJOR regression, not just in behavior (we understand that kids pick up from other kids), but also in things she has learned. They won't move her up because there is no room. We feel the only thing we can do is move her. Are we being unrealistic and unreasonable? HELP!! Does anyone have any recommendations and or reservations about for preschools and coops in the Hercules, Pinole, San Pablo Areas? I saw the postings for Bayside in San Pablo, and I have been calling them for the last week, but no one has returned my calls, are they still around? Has anyone heard of Valley Preschool in Hercules ? Thank you in advance for your assistance! Angela :)

Preschools in El Sobrante

I want to recommed Hope Preschool in El Sobrante on May Rd. We sent our 4 yr old Daughter, and later our 3 year old son and lastly our 15 month old son. They have a great program and teach as well as care for the kids. Moderately priced and reliable.

Kids Korner, 716 Appian Way, El Sobrante, 758-5532. The owners are Debbie and Lois. They take children in diapers. Great staff & nice facility. They provide lunch and snacks only. Staff is ethnically balanced but the children attending are predominately Caucasian and the curriculum has no academic program, well somewhat..its hard to explain. Just a fun place to be. My daughter was there for one and half years about two years ago. In my case, I would recommend Kids Korner verses some of the home day cares I went through.
