Welcome to Pacific Oaks Children’s School

The early years set the stage for learning throughout life. For 70 years, Pacific Oaks Children’s School has been at the forefront of early childhood education.

Founded on the principles of social justice and inclusion, we are internationally known for our pioneering accomplishments in the areas of anti-bias education, emergent curriculum, and peaceful conflict resolution. Our approach is to be responsive to the needs, interests, and emerging abilities of the children we teach.

In each program we focus on foundational skills that support learning at every stage of life, including;

  • Communication and social skill development
  • Thinking skills (inquiry, critical, creative, and problem-solving)
  • Language skills (listening and speaking)
  • Creative self-expression
