Our Story

Saving Our Schools

The three Parent Education Nursery Schools (3PENS) of Santa Cruz County are a coalition of non-profit, parent cooperative pre-schools that offer quality education to both child and parent. Our three PENS are affiliated with the Santa Cruz Adult School of the Santa Cruz City School District, and have been a community treasure for the past 61 years.

Parent participation is the cornerstone of the 3PENS programs. Along with the care and experience of our credentialed teachers, parents are involved in running every aspect of the school. This involvement enhances the quality of the program as each family shares its own unique talents. Parents share resources, build friendships, grow a deep sense of community, and learn to advocate for their children.
