The answer to your question is very simple, do you work on the peninsula? Every morning I enjoy watching the early morning news only to see the traffic on the freeways and all the time wasted.
In todays culture, living close to work is the trend and it only makes sense.
Let me know if I may help further. Happy Holidays to you and your family! Sharon
Art Linkletter was famous for saying, "Kids say the dardest things....."
Children have a way of viewing things for what they really are but are often overlooked in the buying process. Regardless of age, we would strongly encourage buyers with children to actively engage them in the process.
Who knows, they just may be able to see through a lot of the things that may be getting in the way for you and provide you with the clarity you need to move on. Never overlook the wisdom of a child.........

Because we're based in San Francisco we've had lots of clients who had children and fled to the suburbs of both sides of the bay, plus we have a lot more who can't decide whether to get a smaller place here to live in the city or bigger place elsewhere and commute.

First of all, depends on where you work if you are and commute;
Peninsula is very convenient to commute to San Francisco and San Jose, East Bay and Half Moon Bay as there are al the freeways easy access - 101, 280, 92.
And all yours other criterias are also there - good schools, nice view, quality unique home (not development), close to BART, great for raising a family.
Let me know if I can help you anyhow in locating your next home
