El Camino Preschool is situated on a large piece of land in the quiet and safe Fire Mountain neighborhood of Oceanside. The property offers 3 separate play yards that include bicycle paths, large sand areas with wood play structures and are equipped with an abundant supply of buckets, sand scoops and other toys.

At El Camino Preschool children are provided opportunities to explore their world through science, technology, engineering, math, music and art both indoors and in our large outdoor classroom. Play and learning happen inside and outside at

El Camino Preschool.

  Kids love cooking up wonderful creations in the Mud Kitchen, putting on plays on the large stage, fishing from the dock and  boat or playing soccer and other games on the large lawn area.  The yard has many large shade trees including avocado, apricot, plum,  peach, and a macadamia nut tree.  Each class also has a raised planting area where they grow seasonal vegetables.

El Camino Preschool is a wonderful place where children can explore and discover and most importantly
 - all while having fun.

 Outdoor Play and Classroom

On September 7th El Camino Preschool participated in Outdoor Classroom Day which is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire learning and play outside the classroom. The aim of the campaign is to get as many children as possible, all over the world outside for at least one lesson in the school day because lessons learned outdoors often stay with us for life. Our teachers went above and beyond and took all their learning outside that day. All of our children participated in circle, reading, art, singing and dancing. Our Pre-K class also had a special surprise and did some gymnastics! www.elcaminopreschool.com
