At Foothills Preschool we believe that each child is a unique individual with their own pattern and speed of development. Through our differentiated curriculum, we meet each child where they are developmentally and compose a plan for their individual growth and learning goals.
Children are much more interested in learning when they have a say in the subject matter! With that in mind, our teachers design an emergent, developmental, play based curriculum based on shared interests of the class and teachers inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education.
Our lesson planning is based on the California Learning Foundations for Preschool, published by the California Department of Education and we follow the guidelines for environment and curriculum recommended by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the authority in early childhood education.
Assessments for the children are done twice a year to keep parents aware of their child's stage of development. Parents are welcome in our classrooms at any time and are encouraged to visit!
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. We have an extremely low rate of turnover in our teaching staff and all teachers are fully qualified by the State of California per Title 22 and have many years of teaching experience.
Serving the communities of Orange, Tustin, Santa Ana, Irvine and surrounding areas, Foothills Preschool is conveniently located in the City of North Tustin on the Church of the Foothills campus directly across the street from Foothills High School.
