Philosophy
Pacific Beach Presbyterian Church Preschool offers an enrichment program with an atmosphere of love and acceptance. The emphasis is based on the development of social-emotional skills that recognize each child is loved. Our goal is to provide a positive, nurturing environment where children can learn and grow in their own unique way with the support of our caring and professional staff.

Our daily schedule allows each child the opportunities to create, explore the environment and learn problem solving and personal interaction skills.

We feel children learn best
  • When activities are developmentally (age) appropriate.
  • When positive social skills are encouraged and modeled.
  • When intellectual growth is achieved through child centered, hands on, problem solving experiences that involve a balance between self-exploration, play and teacher directed activities.
  • When the child's individuality and creativity are encouraged and supported.
  • Where positive self esteem is the ultimate goal for each child.

Our program is based on the Christian attitude of love. Bible stories and songs may be used to enhance our learning themes. Every child learns about right and wrong, justice, forgiveness, fair play, and the regard for the rights and feelings of others through the use of positive reinforcement.

We allow no discrimination and show respect for the child's unique cultural heritage.

We respect the parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing, and we believe parents and teachers are partners in children's care and education. Our school exists as a center for child, family and community advocacy.
