Children We Serve

We serve children 2½ - 5 years of age. Children are put into class by age: three year old classes, four year old Pre-Kindergarten classes and five year old Junior Kindergarten classes. 

We also offer a Jumpstart Preschool class for young children that are not yet toilet-trained.

Our Curriculum

Saddleback Children's Center is an accredited, developmental program and offers age-appropriate learning activities in a center-based classroom. We have adapted programs such as Zoophonics, Handwriting Without Tears and Jumpin' Numbers & Shakin' Shapes to our curriculum to offer a well balanced program for children. 

We provide an environment that supports children's learning by offering hands on activities and material that promotes the development of:

  • Fine and Gross Motor Skills
  • Receptive and Expressive Language
  • Comprehension and Reasoning Skills
  • Cognitive Skills
  • Social and Emotional Skills
  • The Arts
  • Spiritual Awareness

On a daily basis the teachers intentionally set the classroom centers and activities to include:

  • Literacy - Books, library, writing, reading readiness, rhyming and everyday conversation
  • Math - Counting, number recognition, sorting, measurement, geometric shapes & blocks
  • Science - Exploration of the world including questions and predictions, life-cycles and seasons
  • Art - Creative opportunities for critical thinking, self-expression and relaxation
  • Music & Movement - Songs, instruments and dance
  • Dramatic Play - Teaches life skills through role-playing
  • Group Circle: Greeting, calendar, daily theme, review color, number, shape, bible verse, share time, songs and games.

Our Classrooms

Together, our church congregation and preschool parents have helped to raise enough money to replace flooring in five of our classrooms. The flooring has been replaced and we are now in the process of replacing the furniture. We have already replaced furniture in two of our classrooms. Thank you to all of those involved in this amazing project. There is a lot of love in this school as well as thought and care in this project! Please view the video below to preview the changes and as well as our vision for all of our classrooms.
