School Tours

We also welcome you to arrange a time for a school tour. Please call the main office at 510-865-4536 to set up an appointment. At the time of the tour, we will supply you with an information packet which includes the application form. After the tour, you and your child can come back and observe a classroom in session to get a sense of the work period and to help your child get familiar with the classroom setting.

Child Assessment

During the first six weeks of their enrollment your child will also undergo an assessment process to determine the child’s academic, emotional, social and physical developmental stage. At the end of six weeks there is a scheduled parent and teacher conference to discuss and share the observations and goals for your child for the school year. There are a total of three parent/ teacher conferences in the academic year, at which time you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s development.
