WPENS (Westside Parent Education Nursery School)
Short Business Description
A co-op pre-school in Santa Cruz building life skills and lifelong relationships
Long Business Description

WPENS is a school for families. Since 1970, WPENS has been providing a sense of community that supports your whole family, valuable social skills for your child, learning through play and incredible parenting seminars and speakers.  Our non-profit parent cooperative has been an integral part of Santa Cruz offering quality education to both child and parent.

You, as a parent, are able to support your child learning valuable life skills of sharing, conflict management, and cooperation.  Parent or caregiver involvement in the school provides a higher adult to child ratio and a lower tuition cost.

Parents and caregivers gain parent education through seminars and speakers at meetings, and children gain experience at an amazing preschool.


While parent education is the focus for the adult, learning through play is the work of the child. At WPENS, children freely choose from a variety of materials and play equipment depending upon their own interest, learning style, level of readiness and mood for the day. Allowed this freedom of choice, the child’s play can be free, spontaneous, vigorous and creative.

Hands-on learning engages children in developing their whole being allowing them to become capable and enthusiastic learners. The curriculum for children includes art, music, dramatic play, emergent literacy, science, math, social development and large & fine motor activities.

Our positive discipline philosophy teaches respectful and effective ways of promoting cooperation. The conflict resolution skills that children learn will help them in their relationships with other people in and out of school for the rest of their lives.  ~  ~  313 Swift St., Santa Cruz 95060
