Welcome to Presidio Preschool

Opened August 25, 2008, Presidio Preschool is a small licensed school for children ages 2 years 9 months through 5 years, committed to supporting the whole family. We moved to our current site on Clement Street in the Inner Richmond in November 2010.

Our play based program, with an emphasis on emergent curriculum and process over product, promotes the intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth of our preschool children. This is achieved by providing quality, age appropriate, developmentally guided learning opportunities in a safe and nurturing environment. 

We partner with parents to take an individual approach to the development of each child in a supportive environment. This partnership is promoted by daily communication and parent participation opportunities.

The curriculum follows a preschool program format with indoor and outdoor play (and daily art, music and yoga).
