We are moving to Orinda very soon and I need to find a preschool for my soon-to-be 4 year old fast! Any suggestions?? I am also open to co-ops. Thank you! anon

TOPS (The Orinda Preschool) is a wonderful coop preschool. My children love it, the teachers are wonderful, the administration is wonderful, the parents are committed (most of them at least), and it's been a great way to get to know people, and feel a part of the community. I highly recommend it. Come check it out with your child (make an appointment) and you'll see for yourself. Good luck, there are a lot of great preschools in the area. Happy TOPS parent


Re: Preschools in Orinda
My daughter went to TOPS- the Orinda Preschool which is a cooperative in Orinda. Nice school, very nice director Trish Carella. Lots of families from Oakland, Berkeley as well as Orinda. Very nurturing environment, with lots of extra curricular activities- music fair every year. Also they have a science teacher with organized activities for the children dependent upon their age. My daughter also went to the Montessori in Orinda for 1 1/2 years. A little more rigid and structured of an environment. I have also heard nice things about St. John's preschool.
