Welcome to
Mill Valley's Parent Participation Preschool

Mill Valley Nursery School is a play-based, Reggio-Emilia inspired, parent participation preschool. Our families come together to share a collective learning experience with their children. ​Our school philosophy fosters a child’s natural curiosity of the world while providing a warm and secure environment to build lasting connections. ​Community is at the heart of our school's mission - where friends help friends, and families help families.

Where a neighborhood becomes a community. 

Within our nurturing, inclusive, and deeply engaged community, teachers support parents and children as they grow and learn beside one another.

Our Guiding Principles


Play Based

Through joyful learning and collaborative play, our program focuses on the development of the whole child: physical, cognitive, and social-emotional. We offer a vibrant and nurturing learning community committed to child-led exploration, creativity, and collaboration.


Parent Participatory

We believe parents are valuable contributors to the educational process, bringing their unique perspectives and insights. At MVNS, children, teachers, and families work together to foster a sense of community and mutual support.


Welcoming to All

Our community is woven together by people of diverse abilities, needs, backgrounds, experiences, and cultures. We see and appreciate all differences and commonalities among each member of our community and value their unique contributions to our school.

Build the foundations for a lifetime of curiosity.
