Preschool

3 to 4 year-olds

Preschool introduces students to academic concepts in a safe and nurturing environment. We give them room to explore individual interests and guide them through exciting group activities to build social and emotional skills.

Small Steps, Big Adventures

Preschoolers develop a love for learning as they discover the world around them. Little imaginations are ripe with ideas and questions. We play games, offer unstructured playtime in addition to a range of daily activities to develop small and large motor skills.

Space to Express

Preschoolers learn how to express and understand their emotions in a space that supports social and emotional growth from the very start.

Sparking Imagination

Creative activities and crafts amplify young learners' imagination and problem-solving skills, while games and pretend play help children navigate the world with more independence.

Play to Learn

Our fun, hands-on activities get students excited to learn about letters, numbers, shapes and colors while developing new motor skills.

We are proud to utilize Action Star Learning Curriculum throughout all our infant center and preschool locations. Rooted in our 55 years of dedicated observation and cultivation of young minds, Action Star Learning curriculum was developed exclusively for Action Day by renowned curriculum and educational leaders. 

In our pursuit of excellence, we’ve not only embraced the California standards as a foundational benchmark but have ventured beyond. The Action Star Learning Curriculum integrates these standards with a wealth of additional content, all the while staying true to our experiential learning philosophy and overarching mission to empower children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills in a fun, loving, and innovation friendly environment. To ensure a seamless experience for all, a consistent semi-structured daily schedule is implemented across all our campuses. 

One of the cornerstones of this curriculum lies in its thematic approach. Every month, our students will embark on a voyage of exploration and discovery. These themes, thoughtfully selected to mirror various facets of your child’s everyday life, cover a wide array of subjects such as transportation, animals and habitats,  bubbles, nature, and more. Through engaging, hands-on activities, we will delve into these themes, nurturing growth not only in math, literacy, and science but also in social development, and large and fine motor skills.
