At Foothills Preschool in North Tustin, we believe that each child is a unique individual whose feelings and thoughts cannot be poured into a pre-cast mold. We believe that each child has his or her own individual pattern and timing of growth and development. Through discovery for themselves, children will find that they are an important part of this wonderful world.
We offer two, three and five day Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool programs that are designed to meet the developmental needs of children 2.5 to 5 years of age. Children may attend full day, 3/4 day or 1/2 day programs. A toddler "Parent and Me" class is also offered for children 18 months to 2.5 years of age as a first introduction to a school environment. Our core preschool curriculum is offered from 9:00am to 12:00pm. After and before school enrichment programs are currently offered from 7:30am - 5:30pm.
Our curriculum is developmental, play based and child centered. Assessments are done twice a year on each child in our program based on the California Learning Foundations for preschool issued by the California Department of Education. We follow the highest standards for our curriculum and environment set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the authority in early childhood education. Each child is assessed as an individual and his or her individual needs are included in curriculum planning.
Our caring and well-qualified staff of early childhood professionals is dedicated to developing each child to their full potential through fun and challenging learning experiences. Along with a low, 8 to 1 student to teacher ratio, our Lead Teachers and Assistant Teachers meet the requirements set forth by the State of California in Title 22.
As one of Orange County's best progressive and developmental preschools and Pre-K programs, we offer activities to stimulate young brains and enhance kindergarten readiness. From cooking and music to gardening, our play based, child centered learning programs offer the best in dramatic and creative play for every young learner.
