Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

We feel that children learn by doing what they love to do best - PLAY! We also have teacher lead activities all throughout the day and have incorporated a preschool program that's 5 mornings a week.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our facility is set up so that we can alter the space to meet the needs of both our preschoolers and school aged children. Our high quality staff supervises all activities and makes sure that different age groups are in separate area with peers of similar age group while being involved in fun, age appropriate activities. Our job is to create a play space with activities that enable your child to explore, use their imagination, express and develop their creative and artistic skills, while enhancing and affording them opportunities for learning.

A Typical Day

Children are free to come in and play any time during operating hours. They are free to choose between a variety of activities or free play time. We incorporate cooking, arts and crafts, gross motor activities, sensory activities, language and literacy skills, and much, much more. All California Kids staff are highly trained with backgrounds in early childhood education, health and safety training, in addition to being CPR and First Aid Certified. California Kids staff members that work in our infant room also have specialty courses in infant and toddler care and development. We are very proud of our staff and only hire those with an impressive combination of education and experience in the early childhood field. Additionally, all California Kids staff members under go a thorough criminal background check and many are Trustline certified. You can feel confident that your child is in a quality facility with quality caregivers.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Separation anxiety is completely normal during all phases of children's development and our staff is very familiar with various techniques and ways of helping children cope with separation anxiety. We always get parent's feedback and ask them personally if anything works well for helping their child to feel comfortable when being dropped off. It may be a hug from a favorite teacher, or a special puzzle that they love that helps them to transition and we're determined to make drop-off times as pleasant as possible at California Kids.
