A Community Treasure Since 1975
Santa Cruz Parent Education Nursery School (SCPENS), is a parent participation preschool which includes the only parent participation toddler program in Santa Cruz County.
Our non-profit parent cooperative has been an integral part of Santa Cruz since 1975, offering quality education to both child and parent. We are affiliated with Watsonville-Aptos-Santa Cruz Adult Education. Our sister schools are Westside PENS, Soquel PENS and Watsonville Cooperative Preschool.
