PROGRAM

Vallejo Parent Nursery School provides a play-based environment with arts & crafts, music, stories, and both indoor and outdoor play under competent supervision. Older children are also offered a pre-kindergarten program.

Through nature walks, gardening and field trips, the children are encouraged to observe and begin to understand the world in which they live. Most importantly, they learn how to share, wait their turn, and how to communicate with other students, adults and teachers. Thus, your child is better prepared for Kindergarten.
