La Piccola Scuola Italiana is located in the newly-renovated annex of wonderful St. Gregory of Nysaa Episcopal Church (http://www.saintgregorys.org) in sunny Potrero Hill, the former site of Waldorf-inspired Friends of Potrero Hill Nursery School.

We're thrilled about our location in sunny Potrero Hill, only one block from the Live Oak School, the biggest Whole Foods Market in the city, Jackson Playground and three blocks from the cafes, restaurants, and numerous boutique shops on 18th street.
