VERNA JEAN KINDERGARTEN
Founded and organized by Ella Shaffer, the Verna Jean Kindergarten and primary school of San Francisco has been in existence for three years and was first located on Avilla street. It soon outgrew the original quarters and a substantial brick building of fireproof construction was erected at 2357 Chestnut street, in the heart of the Marina district. The three floors of the building are used for the school and this beautiful structure is now being enlarged by the addition of a dormitory. The school takes the children up to and through the third grade. There are large indoor playrooms, as well as large outdoor yards, where the children enjoy supervised play. Hot, dietary lunches are served and regular dental and medical service is maintained unusual features in schools of this type. Connected with the school from June 15 to August 15, during the period of vacation, is the summer school, ideally situated on the campus of Stanford University at Palo Alto, which enjoys a salubrious and delightful climate. Well known in her profession, Miss Shaffer is widely recognized as an authority on matters relative to the education of children and has made the Verna Jean Kindergarten and primary school one of the finest institutions of the kind in San Francisco.
