Our Rancho Penasquitos Child Development Center, a hidden treasure nestled in the heart of Rancho Penasquitos, was founded in 2001. Don’t let the front entrance fool you, once you step foot inside the building you will be welcomed by friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. The Preschool boasts six larrge classrooms, with adjacent bathrooms, three full sized playgrounds including organic gardens, science discovery area, art studio, stage for dramatic play, and more to provide care for children 6 weeks through 5 years old.
Our highly qualified staff are dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition for your child. We encourage all of our teachers to continue their education in the field of Early Childhood Education. Our low turnover rate is a prime example of how we support their love for teaching. We ensure a school-home connection by providing parents with at-home activities that connect with the curriculum, parent-teacher conferences twice a year, and maintaining a personalized student portfolio that highlights each child’s developmental progress. We believe communication with families is very important—each day you will receive a daily note highlighting what your child learned and important reminders or information.
Our Rancho Penasquitos Child Development Center is proud to be accredited by the National Association of Education of the Young Child (NAEYC), and recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards. NAEYC sets child care Standards of Excellence in the areas of physical environment, curriculum, assessments, family, community, teaching staff, nutrition and health. Of the more than 80,000 child care centers operating in the United States, only about 8% have earned this accreditation.
