Attending preschool prior to kindergarten gives students a tremendous advantage. La Mesa Spring Valley Schools offers part-day (8:30 am – 11:30 am) preschool opportunities to 3 and 4 year old children*. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to learn, grow and explore. Our preschool classes support each child’s individual academic, physical and social-emotional growth by providing developmentally appropriate lessons, materials, indoor and outdoor space, equipment, and guidelines for active play, movement and exploration that are healthy and safe.
Curriculum in our preschool is based on California Preschool Curriculum Framework and teaches the Preschool Learning Foundations. Hands-on, fun learning activities provide experiences that develop the knowledge and skills our youngest learners should know before entering kindergarten. Active, playful exploration and experimentation is encouraged and intentional opportunities are planned throughout the preschool day making our preschool program the best foundation for your child’s educational career.
The collaboration and partnership between school and home begins now. Experiences both in the home and at school are the foundation for continued academic and social success in years to follow. We encourage families to be involved in their child’s learning and volunteer throughout the school year.
