ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Our curriculum is based on the idea that what children need during pre-school years is the freedom to explore their world through play. Play functions as the foundational element for all academic learning children will experience later on in life. Play contributes to all forms of learning — physical, social, emotional and intellectual — by stimulating the child’s ability to acquire and process information. The learning centers in each of the classrooms have been developed with this essential idea in mind.
The Millbrae Nursery School is a nonprofit school owned and operated by the parents of the children currently enrolled. Families manage the school’s administration, finances, housekeeping and building maintenance. Families members also regularly assist the school’s credentialed teachers in the classroom. Families are entrusted to the care of well being of the program so that it will continue to thrive and operate for future generations.
Millbrae Nursery Preschool is a nonprofit, cooperative preschool. Since 1938, Millbrae Nursery School has been providing a safe and social educational experience for children 2-5 years of age and their families.
