Our Curriculum Sacramento Street Preschool provides a small, arts-based program in a mixed-age setting. We use a multifaceted, hands-on approach to explore different topics or themes throughout the year. Our highest priority at Sacramento Street Preschool is welcoming and supporting each individual child and helping all students develop a love of learning! Children will matriculate from the program with a love of learning ready for a larger kindergarten classroom and beyond.

Our Staff Our teaching team is made up of two teachers who have a background in early education and the arts! Together, they build and design the curriculum, taking into consideration children’s needs and interests. The program is led by the Early Education Site Director, Samantha Eaton. On some days the program is also supported by interns or work-study students who work part-time while receiving training in Early Childhood Education, Child Development, or a related field. Staff is trained in First Aid and CPR for young children.

Our Space Sacramento Street Preschool is located in three rooms of the first floor at Agassiz Baldwin Community at 20 Sacramento Street, a large Victorian house. The preschool also uses the art studio in Maud Morgan Arts each day for dedicated visual arts programming. Our spacious backyard includes a sandbox with a water component, children’s garden, and plenty of room to run around and play. Classrooms consist of a kitchen/art room, large meeting room, and a cozy carpeted playroom. In our backyard is the Maud Morgan Art Center. Children will visit the 3D studio each day. The 3D studio is designed for young children. When weather permits, we also have access to the Sacramento Field playground across the street.

Family Events Sacramento Street Preschool hosts a different family event each month to build community and celebrate the work our children are doing in preschool. In addition, there are many ways families may engage with the preschool: joining on field trips, helping with snack, or sharing a special interest or story with the class. We host parent/teacher conferences throughout the year and families are always welcome to schedule a meeting with teachers at any point.
