The 75th Anniversary Open House is scheduled for Saturday, October 5, 2013.
The date approaches and we are so excited! We look forward to visiting with old and new friends, please join us.
In early January 2013, a water supply line broke within the 75-year-old preschool over a weekend, flooding almost every room in the schoolhouse. The water caused significant damage to the walls, floors, and interior, requiring extensive repairs and renovations. Although the flood and subsequent repairs displaced the staff, teachers and students, they were able to find a temporary facility in Burlingame, at Accel Gymnastics. They are currently holding class at Accel until the renovation is complete and plans to return to the newly renovated schoolhouse shortly.
The 75th Anniversary Celebration, which had been previously scheduled for this past spring, is now rescheduled as the renovation nears completion. The celebration will be an open house, held on Saturday October 5th, 2013, from 11AM – 3PM, at 86 Center Street, Millbrae, CA 94030. Millbrae Nursery School invites alumni, past staff, and the entire community to celebrate at the school’s open house.
