Parenting & Family
Palo Alto Adult School parent participation preschool helps children and adults form lasting community connections. For more than 65 years, we have offered preschool programs organized primarily for parent education. Parents develop a deeper understanding of early childhood development and parenting skills through adult discussion classes, formal and informal observations, and community exchanges. The school provides children and their families a nurturing play-based curriculum helping children develop in all areas including creativity, cooperation, peaceful conflict resolution, positive communication, fine and gross motor skills and kindergarten readiness. Our unique participatory structure allows parents to be involved in their children’s preschool education. Please contact the school for more information. All classes are state supported.
