Oceanside First Presbyterian Church and Preschool Playground.JPG

The first five years are the most formative ones in your child's entire development. Our school is designed to meet the needs of children's developmental differences. We encourage your child to explore, ask questions, be creative, get dirty and make wise choices. We offer rich experiences and environments in which your child will feel secure to practice social skills and to learn how to solve conflicts constructively.

About Our School

First Presbyterian Church established the Preschool in 1970 as a service to the community. It is a nonprofit organization supported entirely by tuition. It is operated on a nondiscriminatory basis offering equal treatment and access to services without regard to race, color, or religion. The School is accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, a division of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and is licensed by the California State Department of Social Services. Particular attention is given to qualified leadership and staff. Early childhood education is a highly specialized field. A good preschool program takes careful planning, skill and knowledge.


Arrival Procedures

Drop Off:

Please go directly to your child’s classroom. All children, parents and staff entering our school will receive a general health screening and temperature check. If a child, a parent, or a staff member has a temperature over 100°F then no one in their family group will be allowed to enter. Once children have arrived, they will be directed to wash their hands before participating in any activity

What If My Child Is Sick?

Our policy remains the same. If your child has vomited or had a fever, they must be symptom free for 24 hours before returning. If your child is sent home sick on a Tuesday, they may not return on Wednesday. Remember – SYMPTOM free for 24 hours AND without medication.

Class Assignments

Class Assignments

Children will be assigned to a classroom with the same teachers and same peers throughout the summer session. Classrooms will be defined groups.

Outdoor Time

Outdoor time is an extended time of learning and supports development!  All children will spend time in one of our three outdoor areas during the school day.


Please adhere to the schedule and days that you registered for as we do not have the flexibility to make changes under the mandates.


"Not only did my child love this place and it's staff of amazing teachers, my whole family was invited into a community of peers and friends. We could not have asked for a better preschool experience for my son"
