Due to recommendations by our state and local governments as well as advice from surrounding school districts, the Solana Beach Presbyterian Preschool will be closed from March 16 through April 3. The current plan is to be back in session on April 6.
Since 1964, our philosophy is to help children grow in a positive way in their awareness of God, themselves, and the world around them. We believe in developmentally appropriate play and hands-on activities as the best path to learning. Our staff consists of skilled, experienced early childhood educators that strive to incorporate new ideas, teaching methods, and materials into our program.
Monthly tuition is based on the morning program, which is 8:30 to 12:00. Extended hours are 8:00-8:30 AM and 12:00 to 3:30 PM .
We offer various programs which include:
2.5 Year Old Program: Children must be 2.5 by Sept. 1 of current school year and children DO NOT need to be potty-trained. Tues/Thursday, Mon/Wed/Fri classes offered.
3 Year Old Program: Children must be three years old by Sept. 1 of the current school year and do not have to be fully potty trained. If your child is not fully potty trained, there is an additional $60 per month fee. Tues/Thursday, Mon/Wed/Fri or 5 day classes offered.
Pre-K Program: Children must be four years old by Sept. 1 of the current school year and be fully potty-trained. Mon/Wed/Fri, or 5 day classes offered.
English-Spanish Bilingual Class for Pre-K children. Must be fully potty-trained. Class time is 8:30 am-12:00 pm with regular extended day options until 3:30 for an additional fee.
Our preschool program aims for an equal balance of freedom and structure. Young children need time to explore, socialize, experiment, play and rest. They need to develop basic physical, emotional and intellectual skills, to learn to listen, follow instructions, and to develop readiness for the transition into kindergarten.
Indoor Activities are designed to enhance fine motor skills with art and craft projects, color and shape recognition, seasonal theme projects, reading readiness, math and number concept projects, puzzles, games, dramatic play, and free time.
Outdoor Activities include climbing, sliding, playing ball, digging, scooping, measuring in the sandbox, water play, gardening and more.
Language & Music learning is emphasized through rhymes, singing, rhythm band, small group storytime, and flannel boards.
Spiritual Program through monthly virtues and “The Beginning Bible” lessons. We attend Chapel the first Tuesday and Wednesday of every Month.
