Community

Stretch the Imagination is a wonderful and supportive community of like-minded families. We strive for an approachable and inclusive group of families that believe in the importance of respect, communication, and collaboration during these early years in a child’s life. We welcome parents to join us in the classroom and the Presidio to learn alongside their child throughout the year. We look for families who value the magic and wonder of these early years and who encourage their children to explore and experience learning in a hands-on way. We also attract families who believe in the importance of connecting to the natural world.

Stretch is a group of families who come together to
support the development of the amazing children
we learn and play with each day.

We have an active Parent Association that supports both the educators and families during their time here at Stretch. All community members are part of the PA and individual parents also volunteer to take on leadership roles in our Parent Association. This allows for many fun and welcoming events throughout the year that bring our community together to celebrate in different ways. The PA also works closely with the educators and school administration.

Each class also has two room parents. These volunteers collaborate and bring their individual class communities together outside of Stretch. They act as liaisons with the school and also help to foster communication and encourage participation within our community. Overall, Stretch is a group of families who come together in relationship to support the development of and love for the amazing children we learn and play with each day.
