"If it hasn't been in the hand, the body and the can't be in the brain." - Bev Bos



Roseville Community Preschool is a play-based, parent participation preschool program in Roseville, CA. 

RCP serves children ages 2 years 9 months through age 6. Our philosophy is rooted in the play-based, child-directed, parent participation approach to education that acknowledges that children are naturally motivated by their own desire to make sense of their world and that children learn best through their self-guided, active involvement in the world (playing).  

Parent Participation

Once a week parents participate in their child's class. They supervise and support the children under the guidance of the experienced teachers. With the additional support from the parents, RCP is able to provide many unique  opportunities for the children's physical, cognitive and social/emotional development.

Research shows that both parents and children benefit from such shared experiences. 

See the Parent Participation  section for more information on participation requirements and guidelines. 


At RCP children are able to explore in an environment free from judgement. We offer open-ended opportunities for children to follow their curiosities and do what their bodies are telling them they need to be doing - digging, running, painting, splashing, creating... The adults at RCP support the children and they are ready to guide the children in figuring things out for themselves.


The journey of knowing oneself. Not only the children but the adults have abundant opportunities to experience moments of self-discovery. While supporting the children's growth, by being truly present, parents often experience many "aha" moments to help them in their parenting journey. 

" seemed like a lot, all the participating. Three children later I'm still here and I would do it all again in a heartbeat."

- A Recent Returning Parent


Unified in meeting the needs of these young children, we come together as a community at monthly parent meetings, participate in fundraising and family events for the school. We come together in smaller ways to support one another as well, via carpooling, meal trains, babysitting and more.
