No matter what your child needs, our program will provide the support and tools necessary for optimal growth.
We have a beautiful backyard with an amazing amount of space that allows our children to run, skip and jump! Outdoor playtime is a very important part at Banana Fana where children spend about 2 hours of their day.
SOCIAL EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT
An important component in our program is preparing our students for school readiness and it starts with social-emotional needs in preschool. Preschool social-emotional skills include being able to get along and cooperate with others, focus attention, manage strong feelings, and persist at challenging tasks. These skills deserve focused attention during the preschool years because they are critical for long-term school and life success.
TWO LOCATIONS IN SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Banana Fana Preschool currently operates two licensed preschools in the San Francisco area. Our newly opened Mission District location, along with our Oceanview / Ingleside preschool opened as of May 2019. We have a generous amount of space which allows our students to choose where they would like to learn and play. There are a few rooms in our home where we have thoughtfully laid out materials for our program.
Children at Banana Fana are able to learn through direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas in Spanish and English. They impact their own learning by interacting with different materials, each other, and the teachers. We believe that with cooperative play and creative activities, kids reach their social, emotional and physical milestones naturally and with ease. Our teachers offer emotional and intellectual support to the students, but also allow children to make and pursue their own decisions. Teachers thus expand children’s thinking with diverse materials in the classroom and nurturing interactions. We help children become more independent, responsible, and confident. This helps them to be ready for school and ready for life.
Banana Fana Preschool is where young children will get the tools and support they need for their healthy development. We carefully design our activities to adequately nurture the emotional, intellectual and physical growth of our students. We provide lots hands-on learning opportunities, children are free and encouraged to explore their curiosity.
