Solana Beach Presbyterian Preschool
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.
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 "Scripture Bites". We attend Chapel the first Tuesday and Wednesday of every Month beginning in October.
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 3:00 PM .
