PROGRAM

Vallejo Parent Nursery School and American Canyon Co-op Preschool provides a creative play-based environment with arts & crafts, music, stories, and both indoor and outdoor play under competent supervision, while preparing children for kindergarten.

Through play children are encouraged to be curious, to observe and begin to understand the world in which they live. Children are building their social emotional skills, empathy, kindness and compassion while interacting with peers and other adults.  Learing to communicate and collaborate with other students, adults and teachers makes them better prepared for kindergarten and the world beyond.
