Mission Kids is a child-centered, play-based cooperative preschool, currently serving fifteen children in the classroom a day. Children range in age from 2 years and 9 months to those entering kindergarten. Our program is designed to nurture children’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth by creating a peaceful classroom environment where children can explore while feeling respected and secure.
Mission Kids is located at 1050 South Van Ness, in a church-owned community building between 21st and 22nd Streets. Our newly-remodeled, light-filled room has a kitchen and two enclosed private outdoor courtyards. We have a parking lot, making drop-off and pick-up very stress-free.
Each family is responsible for working a shift in the classroom (although a parent work shift buy-out option is available), holding a parent job, as well as volunteering a certain number of hours towards maintaining the school. Families also attend member meetings and parent education workshops.
