Cow Hollow School is a community of families and teachers from a broad range of cultures, nationalities, family structures, languages, and economic backgrounds. We ​ strive to be a community where each child and family ​is included, valued, and represented, and where ​each participant ​is actively invited to voice ​and ​​contribute ideas, opinions, questions, and values.


The curriculum at Cow Hollow School is based on play, inquiry, exploration, developing relationships, and love of learning according to the natural patterns of the individual child within the context of group learning experiences.


The Collaboratory is a resource for the interchange of ideas and innovation in early childhood education, where parents and educators observe, reflect, dialogue, document and interpret children’s thinking and learning.

For the 2020/2021 school year the Collaboratory strives to further actualize Cow Hollow School’s 8th Guiding Principle: school is a place grounded in the pursuit of social justice, social responsibility, human dignity, and respect for all.
