Saddleback Children's Center...

A family atmosphere with a focus on educational excellence and the beauty of God's creation

Saddleback Children’s Center has been serving families in our community since 1983. We hope you will find the information we have posted for you helpful. Choosing a preschool for your child is a big decision and we would love the opportunity to help you with that choice.


Saddleback Children’s Center is a Christian preschool and ministry of Community Lutheran Church that exists to provide a first educational experience for children 2½-5 years of age. All children need, expect and deserve to be guided in a way that will help them feel safe, happy, healthy and well adjusted. Our program will help children learn and develop to their full potential. We relate the Christian message of faith, love and acceptance to children living in a changing world.

Mission Statement

We intend to promote the development of the whole child throughout their preschool education here: physically, socially, emotionally, creatively, intellectually and spiritually. We will provide a warm, safe, nurturing environment in a developmentally appropriate program. We respect and seek to meet the needs of each child by engaging them in positive experiences that will help children learn, grow and have fun. It is our hope that each child will leave Saddleback Children's Center saying and believing, "I am a good person, I am a great thinker and I love to learn."

We believe that learning does not end in the classroom but continues in the outdoor environment. Learning centers extend to our outdoor playground allowing children to dig in the sand and garden areas, to take off their shoes for heightened sensory experiences, to engage in water play freely, to challenge gross motor skills, and to intentionally explore art, music, and dramatic play.
