A Special Place to Grow
Valley Parent Preschool is a play-based, parent co-ooperative preschool in Danville, California. We offer Preschool, Pre-K, summer camp, and outdoor nature programs for children 1 to 7 years old.
Our curriculum focuses on the whole person and provides opportunities for children to enhance their emotional, social, creative, physical and cognitive growth. We believe family is the most influential teacher in a child’s life and feel privileged to partner with families in the VPP community to foster curiosity and exploration in the children who attend our school.
Learning Through Play
Valley Parent Preschool offers a play-based curriculum. Children are natural learners, motivated by their own desire to understand the world through first-hand experiences.
Our curriculum focuses on the whole child and provides opportunities for children to enhance their emotional, social, creative, physical and cognitive growth through activities that encourage curiosity and foster exploration.
A lifetime of learning
Through their play, children are learning to think, problem solve and create – skills that will benefit them for a lifetime of learning.
In group play, they are also learning how to be social and how to navigate through different social situations. By trial and error (and appropriate teacher interactions) they will learn how to join a group in play, how to treat and keep friends, and how to take care of themselves if someone is not treating them nicely or fairly. If you watch carefully, you will see them working on personal challenges, social issues or family roles through their dramatic play – quite amazing!
