Does anyone have any recommendations for preschools in the Lamorinda area. Our son will be two and a half this coming fall. Thanks for your help Vivien I highly recommend Lafayette Nursery School on First Street. It is a parent led cooperative.
The schools philosophy is based on learning through play. Time is structured by activities - free play (activities are laid out for children to choose from including a music session), circle time, snacktime, outside play. The ratio is 1 adult to 4 children. The 2 directors plus 4 parents every session.
The Director, Nancy Parry has taught at the school for 19 years. She and the co director Kim are both very experienced, kind, calm and exceedingly sensible people.
We are attending the school in a 2 year old program run by the Accalanes Adult Center. This is a once a week program for children attending with parent/caregiver. It gives you an introduction to the school and it's directors. Big plus is that many of the children attending then go on to the pre school program so your child gets the benefit of the same teahers, friends and classroom.
LNS is enrolling now for the Fall. You can book a tour of the school by calling Peggy on (925) 210 1747. Vivienne
