To provide quality early childhood education in an accredited parent participation program, fostering the healthy growth and development of preschool age children through developmentally appropriate practices and parent education. We are committed to building strong partnerships among family, teachers, and community in a safe and supportive learning environment, laying a foundation for continued success in a child’s educational experience.
Mountain View Parent Nursery School, or MVPNS, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, was founded in 1969 by a dedicated group of parents who wanted to enroll with their children in a parent participation preschool. The school was established as a non-profit organization in co-sponsorship with Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District's Adult Education School.
We believe that parents are the most important influence on a child's growth and development. MVPNS provides a place where both parents and children can develop together. Under the guidance of qualified and experienced staff, parents participate in every aspect of the program. Parents' contribution of time and energy are key to creating the best possible early childhood experience for their children in the community.
