Haight Ashbury Community Nursery School

Opened in 1974, HACNS is a place for children to develop an enduring love of learning through imaginary play, developmentally appropriate art and science projects, books, music, and movement. Housed at the Grattan Playground in Cole Valley, our uncommonly large, sunny, and sandy playground is an urban oasis where children have the opportunity to master new physical challenges with the freedom to explore and use their imaginations. 

Our school offers children ages 2.9 - 5 years a wonderful place to learn and grow. As a cooperative nursery school, parent participation helps create a family atmosphere truly reflective of the San Francisco community.
