The Peter Pan Cooperative Nursery School is a play-based parent cooperative located in Oakland, California. Since 1947, we have been providing a community, a neighborhood, and an extended family in which parents and children can grow and learn together in a diverse, nurturing, and flexible environment.
Peter Pan lives in “Maxwell House,” located on the grounds of Maxwell Park (4618 Allendale Avenue, east of High Street in Oakland, not far from Mills College). We are licensed for children from two to six years of age and have a ratio of four children to each adult. Our students do not have to be toilet trained.
We follow the OUSD school calendar and holidays, with a school day that begins at nine and ends at noon. An optional PM program is available from noon to 2:45.

Admissions are closed for the current year, but we will begin the enrollment process for the 2014-15 school year with an open house on January 28th and school tours the first two weeks of February. (Tour sign-ups are now open.)
Peter Pan is a non-profit, parent-run organization affiliated with the California Council of Parent Participation Nursery Schools. We welcome families of diverse racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
