Pictures of School

So here’s a picture of the room where I work:


I actually get the room attached to it, too, where the fishies and the guinea pig live:


The guinea pig’s name is Mei-Mei. She likes to eat parsley.


This is the art room (that’s Robin painting):

It isn’t just for art, but all kinds of sensory play. There’s a trough holding cornmeal and various things that are fun to dredge through it, and there’s usually play-dough or something else tactile set out on the tables. Here’s another picture of the same room:

This is the block room:

And the upper playground:


I was standing in the playground when I took this photo of the park below:


So, it’s really a nice physical space they’ve got, with a lot of different activities for the kids to explore.

    Wow wow wow wow !!!

    These pictures are so so awesome … and pretty much exactly what I had in my head when I was looking for during my family daycare and then preschool searches. I didn’t find it (or anything close) for either

    Loved yesterday’s very detailed description also.

      You know, we didn’t pay attention to preschools when we were doing our house search, so it’s basically just sheer dumb luck that Peter Pan’s within walking distance. Turns out the co-op was founded in 1947, by a group of women from Mills College! So it’s something of a neighborhood institution.

      Also: we pay $290 a month for Robin to attend four mornings a week. Couldn’t find anything near that value except in the co-op model — which I prefer anyway!

    I love the look of the blocks room! Never mind the kids – I want to play!
