About Us

Founded in 1939, Sausalito Nursery School is one of the oldest cooperative nursery schools in the country. 


As a parent cooperative, Sausalito Nursery School affords parents and children the opportunity to participate together in the excitement and joy of the first years of learning. The students enjoy the best of both worlds: parent participation and professional guidance by a full teaching staff.


We believe education is best served when teachers, parents, children and families work together. We strive to provide a secure, comfortable and responsive environment, and respect, accept and encourage each child’s independence and autonomy.


Sausalito Nursery School maintains an environment free of racial, religious or sex role bias, stereotypes or prejudice.
