With its close proximity (2 min drive) to I-80 and I-580, Nomura Preschool straddles several communities in the East Bay, CA. This convenient location between Hercules, Pinole, San Pablo, Richmond, El Cerrito, Albany, Kensington and Berkeley allows parents to quickly drop off their child without adding significant commute time.

As a longtime member of East Bay communities and a cultural leader in Bay Area preschool care, Nomura Preschool children and parents are encouraged to apply their imaginations and curiosity to the world around them. To that end, we’ve developed a short list of children’s activities for each of our local East Bay cities. By no means comprehensive, these lists include a few city-specific places, events and organizations where your child can grow and have fun.

Opal Staniek Tot Lot

Talbot Ave & Dartmouth St., Albany / Mini Park (.07 acres)

“The Opal Staniek Tot Lot is a mini park designed for tots. The park is enclosed by a fence and has a play structure, picnic table and fun recycling wall. The current site of the Staniek Tot Lot was once a home that belonged to Opal Staniek. Opal loved children and left her property to the City of Albany to establish a mini park for the neighborhood children. Although the City now calls the park the Dartmouth Tot Lot, its original name was Staniek Tot Lot, after Opal. There was a plaque at the corner that was removed at the request of the family. In honor of her dedication to our community, residents in this neighborhood continue to call the tot lot Opal’s Park.”
