BENEFITING: VENICE PARENTS DAYCARE AND PRESCHOOL
In October 2011, a group of dedicated parents opened a preschool under the auspices of the YWCA Santa Monica. This unique school offers a safe, nurturing, sensory-rich environment where teachers and parents support the growing physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs of the whole child.
Over four years later, we were informed that the YWCA would be shutting down the school as well as the unique toddler programs at the Cottage in June of 2016.
Now a new group of dedicated parents of current, alumni, and prospective students are determined to continue the preschool and toddler programs as an independent entity, preserving our educational philosophy, our wonderful 1:4 teacher to student ratio, and our fantastic outdoor classroom spaces.
