A Few Words About Bernice & Joe Playschool
Since 1980, we have proudly served the child care needs of the parents of Oakland and surrounding communities.
We call ourselves a playschool not only because play is the work of a child, but as an alumnus of ours once remarked, “I like the name because I knew right away what I could do there.”
At first, Bernice & Joe lived at this location in the Millsmont Oakland hills and did family day care. In 1991, they moved out with their two boys and converted their home into a child care center but kept its family home quality. From the street, it looks like just another house in the neighborhood
What our families have to say
This is a warm, funky, sweet little preschool.
The teachers are engaging, nurturing, funny and incredible with the children.
This is a great, homey school. The double lot yard is definitely a main attraction.
I knew that it was the school for us when [after visiting] with our 2 year old son…, he asked that same evening when we’d go back.
