About Us

Broadway Children's School of Oakland is a diverse, play based community preschool located in the Adams Point neighborhood in Oakland, CA. We began in 1952 on Broadway in downtown Oakland. In 1984, our school moved to the little yellow house on Adams Street. For over 70 years, families have joined the Broadway community through the PACT (Parents And Children Together) program and the nursery school/preschool programs. 


At Broadway Children's School of Oakland, our play-based programs reflect the belief that every child is unique and special, and we nurture and encourage that sense of individuality so that each child will develop within his or her own framework. In a caring and playful environment, we work to help each child build competency in the social, emotional, intellectual, and creative selves that make the whole child. We combine child-centered learning with parent enrichment, cultivating a committed community that offers families a bedrock of support, knowledge-sharing and friendship. We strive to serve a school community that reflects and celebrates the unique and beautiful diversity of the East Bay. It is a wonderful place to learn and grow together!

Broadway's professional team of early childhood educators is experienced, caring, collaborative and creative. We offer competitive pay and benefits to recruit and retain amazing teachers.


Broadway Children's School of Oakland is a 501(c)(3) community nonprofit organization, federal tax ID #94-3213017.
