What makes Pacifica Co-Op Nursery School unique in the field of professional childcare is that parents are…More actively involved in all aspects of their child's care and education. Parents work with the guidance of a professional staff to learn "about their children as their children learn about the world." In other words, The Pacifica Co-Op Nursery School is parent run, but professionally directed.
Parents must work weekly shifts at the co-op, work on projects with other parents throughout the year and seek educational development. Among other benefits, this parental involvement lowers the cost of enrolling a child at the co-op.
Children can attend the Pacifica Co-Op Nursery School in the morning or in the afternoon

Pacifica Community Television is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation that provides an outlet, both on Channel 26 and…More pct26.com, for residents and community leaders in Pacifica to share their news and work with the larger community.
In the '60s, before cable television became the standard, PCT, then a closed-circuit program of a local high school, began out of a need caused by the fact that many over-the-air channels would not reach Pacifica due to the surrounding hills and fog. By the '70, the station began broadcasting a signal and in 1972 won an Emmy for its broadcasts.
Today, PCT offers a variety of 21st-century TV and film-related opportunities to the community, including workshops on graphics, lighting, camera operation, audio editing and directing. And, of course, Channel 26 showcases programs ranging from nationally-encompassing Democracy Now to city council meetings. A complete program schedule and list of events and workshops can be found on PCT's website.
