Maureen was born and raised in Oakland. The family owned and operated preschool began in her own home in 1981. Chatham Preschool began to expand with the 39th campus in 1999. Years later, Chatham expanded to include the Redwood campus. With over 40 years of service to the community, their goal has always been to support the natural process for each child to realize his/her full potential. Chatham Preschool’s nature infused environment provides the early building blocks for life long skills that help the whole child develop naturally.
