Albany Preschool is a parent cooperative. A Board of Directors composed of current parents, along with the Executive Director and teachers, administers the school. The Board hires the professional staff to develop and supervise the preschool programs, and to be in charge of the daily operation of the school.
We are licensed to have up to 24 children at a time. Under current COVID-19 requirements children must be in stable bubbles/pods of up to 16 children and adults total per pod, and the pods are to social distance from each other as much as possible. Also due to COVID-19 the children spend most of the time outside. When COVID pod restrictions are lifted additional schedule options may be offered.
- Pod 1: Half-day: School year program (follows Albany Unified school year, mid-August to beginning of June), 8:30 am – 12:30 pm — Monday, Wednesday, Friday
- Pod 2 – Full day: Year-round program, 8 am – 4:30 pm — Monday through Friday
Information on our half-day summer camp program schedule and tuition will be available in April.
