We believe that together as parents and staff we can enhance growth, development and self-esteem, and promote a deeper understanding and respect of each child’s unique qualities. It is our objective to create an environment of learning for parents and children to practice numerous skills which will increase the cognitive, social-emotional and physical skills of each child, by providing hands-on experiences in a safe, socially stimulating and supervised environment.

Regular in-person instruction will resume in Fall 2021

Teacher Jenn

Jenn Maesen

Lead Teacher

Teacher Jenn has been in the education field for the past 15 years. She received her BA in Liberal Studies, earned her Multiple Subject teaching credential, and received her Masters in Elementary Education. She taught in Kindergarten and 1st grade for 11 years before deciding to become a stay at home mom. She was a substitute teacher at the Co-op before her oldest son graduated from PCNS and decided to take on a bigger role at the Co-op for the 2019-2020 school year as a teacher. Her goals are to create independent little learners, who love to discover the world around them in a safe and happy environment. When she isn’t at school, you can find Jenn having fun with her husband and two boys.

Teacher Christina

Christina Jackson


Teacher Christina has been working with children since she was one herself! From babysitting for family to starting her own (with a stop in pediatric dentistry along the way!), Christina knew she had found her future when she and her husband enrolled their daughter at PCNS.
She was a frequent fill in for moms and teachers even after her daughter left for kindergarten, and while also providing childcare for school families, Christina obtained her Early Childhood Education credentials from Skyline College. We’ve been happy to have her for over five years!


Our school is housed on a large and versatile playground including a tree-house themed play structure, large area for sand play, swings, and an organic, edible garden. Our indoor space is housed in an historical Quonset Hut.

The school building is currently closed, but we encourage prospective families to visit the school grounds at 548 Carmel Ave in Pacifica.
