Rocky Mountain Participation Nursery School began in 1948 when it was known as Mission Cooperative Nursery School. It was located on Capp street and Potrero Avenue before it moved to its present location, Peixotto Playground, in the 1970’s. It is the park and its beautiful surroundings that led the co-op to be renamed “Rocky Mountain.”
Our commitment to community is ongoing as we provide a place for families to continue their understanding of connection to themselves, each other and the world.
We are a member of the California Council of Parent Participation Nursery Schools — a group of cooperative nursery schools that shares ideas and opportunities and provides educational and organizational support. We are also affiliated with City College of San Francisco – our school is an ongoing Parent Education class and our Director is an Instructor in the Child Development and Family Studies Department. We rent our space from the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department and care for the grounds on a daily basis.
We continue to provide families with a supportive environment in this ever-changing world.
