Welcome to our family. At Adventist Education Simi Valley Preschool, when your child is in our care, we’re family. As family we believe in working together to meet the particular needs of each child. Our program is designed to support the natural unfolding of the child. We meet them where they are and bring them to where they are ready to be.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
We teach basic Christion values that provide opportunities for children to learn about God and Jesus in a loving, caring, and intellectually stimulating environment. We’ve chosen the Carden Method© for the academic portion of our preschool program – Experience, Identify, Define – this is the Carden learning cycle. It’s the way children naturally learn.
Our highly trained teachers provide a wide variety of activities to prepare your child to grow academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. We teach children to become independent, self-motivated learners by educating the whole child in a safe and nurturing environment.
Physical Education, science, art, music, rhythm, movement and dramatic play are all part of the daily activities that allow the children to discover and explore the world around them.
