Millbrae Nursery School Sibling Policy

Millbrae Nursery School has the best sibling policy of all preschools in San Mateo County, siblings can be brought to parent’s workdays with very few exception. Read the entire policy that is  also found in the handbook here:

Siblings under two (2) years of age will be allowed at no charge when the following guidelines are met:

  1. The attendance of the child has been arranged with the teacher or Admissions Coordinator prior to the parent’s workday.
  2. Only one (1) child under the age of two(2) will be allowed per class session.
  3. For the safety of all children, the sibling must be supervised by his or her parent while the parent accomplishes their assigned workday duties.
  4. The State adult:child ratio must be maintained.

Siblings two (2) years or over will be allowed when the following guidelines are met:

  1. The attendance of the child has been arranged with the Director prior to his or her attendance.
  2. The child must be between the ages of two (2) and six (6).
  3. The child will be billed at the drop in extended care rate.
  4. The child’s care and safety will be the responsibility of Millbrae Nursery School.


If you are doing a workday for pay you will only be able to bring one (1) child who is currently enrolled in the school program with you on that workday. NO siblings less than 2 years or over 7 years will be allowed to accompany you on a paid workday.

Why I love MNS – Let’s begin with the Teachers and the Staff!

MNS Teachers are very dedicated and have a knack for guiding children.  I am amazed again and again on how Teacher Brigidan, Liselle, Norma, and Megan are all consistently calm, warm, and relaxed whenever I see them.  They patiently listen to kids and encourage the sharing of ideas by all, either all morning or all afternoon.  They are respectful and insist on the same from everyone as they tirelessly remind the children to “use words” and to use “soft touches.”  I know that the kids are learning valuable social skills to get along with each other.  I know that the kids are getting consistent guidance on how to handle conflicts or difficult emotions.  Kids naturally know how to play and explore, but when it comes to being safe and respectful, that takes a lot of work and reminding by the adults, and in this area and in the area of making learning fun and making experiences new, the teachers and staff are pros! I feel so lucky that my son and I are surrounded by such nurturing, hardworking teachers and staff.  They have allowed and encouraged my son to blossom in many ways that has truly surprised me and made me proud (a topic for another day).  I too have learned a lot from the teachers.  They are inspiring mentors and have my most heartfelt thanks.
