At the Berkeley Urban Garden School we grow together. Children, parents and staff create an atmosphere of mutual respect and meaningful relationships to provide a solid foundation for authentic learning. We provide a year-round preschool program designed to nurture each child’s inherent strengths and inspire healthy growth and development. By expanding on ideas that emerge in play, teachers cultivate curiosity and enthusiasm for discovery. Daily opportunities include child-directed play, art activities, sensory experiences, music and movement, cooking and gardening. Each day we come together in a brightly lit well equipped classroom and urban garden play yard designed to support our community and engender a spirit of freedom and sense of possibility.
