Welcome to The Oaks Parent Child Workshop 


The Oaks has been educating children and families since 1947. Families who join The Oaks will be joining generations of Santa Barbara families who chose to participate in a cooperative nursery school, with the goals of learning more about child development and parenting, becoming a part of a nurturing and supportive community, and having a hand in creating a responsive and stimulating learning environment for their preschool children.


As a result of the pandemic, The Oaks has been closed since March 2020. Throughout this period, we are continuing to connect as a community through virtual lunch dates and field trips, weekly library and activity bags prepared by the staff, virtual parent education meetings, and virtual parent board meetings. We are maintaining our connections while working to keep everyone safe and looking forward to brighter days ahead. 


Currently we are fully enrolled. To join our waitlist, please email the director to schedule a tour: Theresa Embry, at: director@theoakspcw.org
