Love this school

I am so glad to finally see this school listed on the Marin Mommies site. A lot of people don't even know about it. They are the best. All 3 of my children have gone/go there. They teach future pre-k teachers, so they are the best at what they do, since they have to teach how to do it right!! They are a play based center, where kids learn through play, which is the only DEVELOPMENTALY APPROPRIATE way for young children to learn. They do take students and professors children first priority, but usually always have space left of the public. If you have not looked at it, please do. They go on fun nature walks on that amazing campus and to the garden, as well as offer plenty of family fun events through the year.
