Welcome to The Pear Tree Preschool

The Pear Tree Preschool & Kindergarten is located in a wooded residential neighborhood just off Keller Avenue in Oakland. Our setting is a small cottage transformed into a beautiful school house. We are a school specifically designed to support the early childhood development and Pre-K readiness of preschool age children. We also offer a comprehensive Transitional Kinder & Kindergarten program aligned to Common Core Standards. Our Kinder group is expanding into Pear Tree Primary in the 2015 - 2016 school year. Our student to teacher ratio in both programs is 1:5 which allows us to provide the hands-on nurturing that we believe children of all ages deserve. We serve children 2.9 - 5 years old, and are expandng into Primary School. Our exceptional staff of Montessori-certified teachers has years of early childhood experience, and are also Pre K - 12th grade Montessori Credentialed.  The Pear Tree is a high performing early childhood school, TK, Kinder, and soon to be primary school, committed to supporting diversity, social justice, and making education joyul and magical for students.  We are proud to be creating a dynamic, engaged community of learners that include children, teachers, parents and families.
