Scanning the room, you notice a group of children happily constructing a marble run with blocks and PVC pipes, others playing a math game with a parent, and some outside observing wildlife with magnifying glasses and notebooks. Amidst the action, you locate the teacher, sitting on the rug with a small group of students forming letters on mini chalkboards.

Culture, Community, and Play: Lycée Français de San Francisco Brings a New Playground to Sausalito

November 3, 2014

Lycée Français de San FranciscoMarin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Lycée Français de San Francisco, which offers preschool and K–8 education at its Marin County campus in Sausalito. To learn more, visit the school online at lelycee.org.

The beginning of this school year marked a milestone for the Lycée Français de San Francisco’s campus in the Ebbtide neighborhood of Sausalito. The French immersion primary school started classes in in the fall of 2013, but the will and generosity of its parent community, along with the collaboration of Sausalito City Council, culminated this past September in the final touches on a playground that can be shared by children throughout Southern Marin.

The days are starting to edge towards a Bay Area winter, but the sun still shines brightly off the yellows and greens of the school’s play structure. LFSF boasts a strong community of families, and their dedication to their school and its new location brought this private and public space to fruition. The pride and personal investment of parents and classes is displayed on the colorful tile wall that runs along the playground’s northwest side.
