The Peter Pan Cooperative Nursery School is a play-based parent cooperative located in Oakland, California. Since 1947, we have been providing a community, a neighborhood, and an extended family in which parents and children can grow and learn together in a diverse, nurturing, and flexible environment.
Peter Pan lives in "Maxwell House," located on the grounds of Maxwell Park at 4618 Allendale Avenue, east of High Street in Oakland (not far from Mills College). We are licensed for children from 2 to 6 years of age (children do not have to be toilet trained), and have a ratio of four children to each adult. We follow the OUSD school calendar and holidays, with a school day that begins at nine and ends at noon. An optional PM program is available from noon to 2:45.
Peter Pan is a non-profit, parent-run organization affiliated with the California Council of Parent Participation Nursery Schools. We welcome families of diverse racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Alumni mailing list: Former Peter Pan students and parents! We have a new Yahoo group just for you—a low-traffic group where you can keep up with our social events and major news, without having to wade through the day-to-day administrative traffic like sick kid announcements and workday swap requests.
