Kentfield is an excellent place to raise kids. Start with the school district -- one of the best in the Bay Area (see my website for links to test scores). There are also many parks, and easy access to Mt. Tam for all the biking and hiking trails. Ross Valley Little League, Ross Valley Soccer League, and Grizzlies Lacrosse are just some of the sports leagues available to young children. Many swim and tennis clubs offer swim and tennis teams open to non-members as well. The weather is superb -- warm summers offer ample recreational opportunity. The community is extremely welcoming. The Ross Valley Mother's Club is a great way for moms to connect, and there are dads' activities as well. I've sold 4 homes in Kentfield just this year to families, and currently have another listing. I've also written a book entitled Babies by the Bay -- full of resources for young families. Feel free to contact me if you would like more information.
