Mills College Children’s School


From its inception in 1926, Mills College Children’s School (MCCS) has had the dual mission of providing quality education for both children and adults. To this day, we continue to hold that mission at our core, providing hands-on, experiential learning to the children across our programs, from Infant/Toddler all the way up to 5th grade, as well as providing mentorship to student teachers from the School of Education doing their practicum in our classrooms. Inquiry is at the heart of our unique model and we support research at all levels, ranging from formal studies to student teacher curriculum projects to helping children investigate their own ideas and hypotheses.

In February 2000, state-of-the-art buildings were designed for the Children’s School with teaching and learning in mind. Facilities feature light-filled rooms, outdoor porches, expansive age-appropriate play areas, and an outdoor classroom. As part of Mills College, students have access to the campus’ athletics facilities, woods, trails, and open spaces, all in the heart of a vibrant, urban setting.

Scholarships and financial aid is available. Please contact for details.
