Goleta Valley Nursery School


The Goleta Valley Nursery School staff welcomes you and we are glad you have chosen to learn more about our program.  When you and your child enter Goleta Valley Nursery School you will discover a preschool where children are nurtured and loved and can be what they are---children.  We offer play-based, hands-on experiences for the children to explore, discover and learn about the world around them. The children learn and grow in ways that are appropriate for their level of development.

We hope that you enjoy browsing our website and welcome any questions you may have. Please feel free to email or call to schedule a tour of our beautiful newly-remodeled preschool.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. It's a way to cope with life and to prepare for adulthood. Playing is a way to solve problems and to express feelings. In fact, play is the real work of childhood. “
