Welcome to Laurel Hill!

Established in 1946, Laurel Hill is one of the oldest and largest parent-participation, cooperative nursery schools in San Francisco. At Laurel Hill we provide a rich, stimulating, and safe environment where the children learn through play.

Application to Laurel Hill Nursery School is open to all, and we encourage families from diverse economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds to apply.

Our member families fulfill required participation responsibilities, and by doing so allow us to offer an unrivaled experience at extremely affordable rates. But more important than the financial benefits, participating at Laurel Hill allows you to connect with an incredible community. You’ll know your children’s friends and teachers intimately, and have the satisfaction of being truly involved in your child’s first foray into the school environment.

Located in the Laurel Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, Laurel Hill has a phenomenal facility with 4 separate classrooms opening onto an enormous multi-level outdoor play space with areas for biking, digging, gardening, climbing, making art and more.

We offer nursery school and pre-kindergarten (pre-K) programs as well as extended care, as space allows, from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
