Welcome to Stretch the Imagination:

We are a preschool that believes at our core that young children are capable and competent. Our educators facilitate learning through a project-based curriculum where inquiry, collaboration and creativity are actively promoted. We strive to create a nurturing and safe environment where young children are encouraged to explore and discover freely. We embrace the importance of partnering with our parent community and cultivate a practice of strong communication and dialogue.

Summer Camps

Welcome to Stretch's Summer Camp Program.  Our summer programs are designed to allow children to explore and thrive in the comfort of a small and nurturing setting. All camps follow our philosophy of hands-on, experiential learning and model the program we explore with the chidren in our preschool during the school year.

Exciting news! We have added Nature Camps for children ages 4.9-8.  We will spend the whole week in the Presidio immersed in a rich natural setting. All camps can be viewed by selecting the camps tab at the top of this page.


You may register for camps directly online. Parents will be notified by email that their child has been accepted into camp.  Camps are divided into age groups. Parents may enroll their chidlren into multiple weeks. Camp weeks run from June 8th - August 22. There is a one time, non-refundable $25 registration fee for new families.
