Gingerbread Preschool has over a 50-year history in the Pleasanton Community.  The school year program is a part-time recreation program that provides children an opportunity to experience a classroom setting prior to kindergarten.

Preschool Mission Statement

Gingerbread Preschool is an inclusive, PLAY based program that supports children where they are socially and emotionally.  We prepare children for kindergarten through purposeful PLAY and a progressive academic curriculum with our passionate teachers.
