Rustic Canyon Parents Nursery School was first organized in 1950 and was given use of the facility before it became a park. The school was organized by a group of local parents to provide a participation experience for themselves and their children. Now, in collaboration with Los Angeles City Parks and Recreation, Rustic Canyon Park provides the facilities for the school. This school was incorporated in 1956 as a nonprofit educational corporation that is licensed by the State of California. Now, more than sixty years later, that tradition still lies at the heart of all we do. By choosing a cooperative preschool, parents make a commitment to participate in their child’s preschool program. This involvement will prove invaluable to our children as it is carried on throughout the elementary levels of education and beyond.
