Re: Preschools with Male Teachers
Last year my son was at Arts and Sciences in Oakland when the school just hired a wonderful male teacher from England. He was very warm and nurturing and was great with the kids. Check out the school, I'm not sure if he is still there. former parent
I was hoping to hear from parents who currently have their
children enrolled at the The School of Arts & Sciences.
There are only a couple postings about the school and they seem
to predate the departure of the head teacher, Judith. We are
considering the school for our daughter in the fall and I would
love to hear any and all comments. The program seems very rich
and the environment warm and nuturing, but nothing beats hearing
from some current customers. :-) Thanks!
Parent of a Preschooler
I would appreciate any advice on the following preschools: School of Arts & Science on Broadway in Oakland (affiliated with Duck's Nest), Applegarden Montessori in Montclair and Claremont Day Nursery on College or Claremont. I am looking for my daughter who will be nearing four in the fall and have read the reviews archived on the parents network. I'd appreciate any more up to date info. Thanks! Elizabeth
I understand that Elementary School of Arts and Sciences in Oakland will soon reopen under new management by the folks who operate the Duck's Nest Preschool and wonder if anybody has any experiences to share about the new people who will be running and teaching at ESAS. I;m reluctant to sign up my child at a new school unless I know more about who will be running the school and teaching my child. Many thanks. Interested parent
Re: Elementary Schools with Pre-K Programs
I am a mother of two attending Duck's Nest Preschool at the Piedmont site. We are extremely happy with the site, curriculum, enrichment and community outreach programs. The teachers and administration have created a community that is incredibly nurturing, playful and supportive.
Duck's Nest have recently announced a new ''Developmental Pre-K Kindergarten'' Program at the Elementary School of Arts & Sciences. A short description follows.
The Elementary School of Arts & Sciences announces a new ''Developmental Pre-K Kindergarten'' Program by Duck's Nest. Our Pre-K & Developmental Kindergarten Program is designed to meet the needs of a child who is of kindergarten age (4.9 years), but developmentally would thrive in an environment, which further defines the individual child 's social skills, self-esteem and independence. With preschool locations now in Berkeley and Piedmont, and our new Pre-K & Developmental Kindergarten Program site, we offer child-sized nooks and crannies integrated into a complex of bright classrooms and play areas. Duck's Nest provides a unique learning environment designed solely to support your childs' enthusiasm for learning. Please call us for information at our Piedmont site 510.428.0901. The Elementary School of Arts & Sciences ''Developmental Pre-K Kindergarten'' Program by Duck's Nest 5766 Broadway Oakland, California 94618 510.658.5443 Dana
For anybody who searches for a great small classroom elementary school: I recommend The Elementary School of Arts and Sciences on 5766 Broadway. Carol Smith is the Director and teacher. It is a K-3 grade school with fun curriculum and small number of students. If you are looking for a warmth and small classroom size school , this is the one. I know Carol for five years now and she is doing a wonderful job with the children. My youngest one will be in 3rd grade and she can hardly wait to start school. This year they will study Aztecs, mayans, and Incas, in science they will study rainforests, then in January they will study astronomy. This school is the "paradise" school for children who need more attention, the school has computers, pets (rabbit, birds, turtles), many many science projects throughout the year. Highly recommended by me and my children. Also, they have after school program "Musical theater" in which they perform in their backyard every other month. They still a few openings and the school awards financial assistance to qualify applicants. More information: 510-658-5443 Elena
