Hello and welcome to College Park Preschool. We are a play based learning program inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. We offer an emergent curriculum inspired by children and create learning environments “where imagination soars”.
Our classrooms and playgrounds are active, learning environments where children are encouraged to explore, experiment, and discover. Teachers provide challenges for children at the appropriate developmental level, and work with children to develop problem solving skills. Opportunities are provided for children to develop small and large motor skills, self-help skills, and language skills. Materials are provided for children to explore and express their creativity. The foundation is laid for “academic concepts” and for children to develop a desire to be a lifelong learner. We encourage parents and teachers to work together to create the best possible experience for the children. Parents are welcome in our classrooms at all times.
College Park Preschool was founded in 1962 and is supported by the Faith Presbyterian Church of San Diego. We are not a faith based program, however we do aspire to provide a nurturing environment where Christian values of compassion, understanding, respect, and caring are upheld. We are a non-profit organization supported entirely by tuition. The school is licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services. (Facility # 376600273).
