Sharon Malone, Teacher and Director SJPPNS

In 2007, Sharon received an “Award of Merit” from the California Council of Participation Nursery Schools for her dedication to the education of young children and adults. Sharon strongly believes in the co-op, play-based philosophy of learning for young children.

“Not only does the child develop to their fullest potential through exploration and discovery, the parents have the benefit of learning about the development of their children through their participation and education. This experience stays with the child and helps to build a strong foundation for their continuing education. It also builds a community of parents who remain involved in the education of their children well into their middle school years.”

Sharon grew up in Saratoga and lives in Willow Glen with her husband and two school aged children.
