Physical Description

Located at 2226 Encinal Avenue in Alameda, our 3–7 year olds (preschool through 1st grade) enjoy school in a beautifully remodeled Victorian. The main classrooms have hardwood floor and radiant floor heating. Classrooms are spacious and light-filled. We have an expansive playground and outdoor eating area.


Students at the Encinal location are 3 1/2 years old through 1st grade age. Students who enter the Encinal school have transitioned from toilet training and are ready for a full school program.
