General School Mission

"The purpose of the preschool is to assist families in the tasks of parenthood and to improve parenting skills in an environment that fosters cooperation, friendship and community involvement. The mission is to provide:
Parent education through active participation in the care and guidance of children, and in discussion groups under the direction of people trained in preschool education
Opportunity for preschool children to cooperate with each other, and to play with other children in a surrounding that will provide a sense of security and happiness
To provide a play-based, child-centered preschool experience under the guidance of a trained teacher-director and the assistance of parents, which will emotionally and socially prepare the child for kindergarten.
If you want to learn more about the principles that recognize the importance of parent involvement in the education of young children, we invite you to visit our school and talk with our director.
The Castro Valley Parent Nursery School is rich with over 50 years of Tradition in the Castro Valley community. Come see how parents and children can grow together in an environment of friendship and sharing fun.
