We are 30 years young and over that period of time the majority of our enrollments have come from referrals made by our wonderful families.
Here are some of the great things that they have shared.
The "old house" vibe is actually what sold us. We moved down From L.A. in June and didn't realize how sterile our daughters previous school was until we came to El Camino. It's the perfect little beach/country atmosphere we were looking for. We wanted her to be able to roll in the grass and climb and run like a real kid, not some hot house orchid. She's never sick here as opposed to the plethora of ailments that were always floating around her last school.
The teachers never seem stressed or disconnected. There's a lot of love here. My daughter is well taken care of. If she has a scrape or a splinter or is running a little hot, the teachers are on it. The communication is wonderful and the overall feeling is very carefree.
All the parents are super normal and friendly... I love coming here every day. I'm a worrier and it's a great relief to not have to obsess about my sweet little girls safety and happiness.
We loved the atmosphere...homey, warm layout of the building, and the spacious play areas.
The Pre-K class with Ms. Sharon is the class that both of my kids attended where they "took off" in their growth. She did a wonderful job with my boys and had them totally prepared for Kindergarten. Every day, both of my sons would come home from school talking about what a great day they had...never a bad day.
We couldn't ask for anything more.
They have a huge outside area, where the kids can use their imagination and play. The past few weeks my son has been singing the ABC's and can make it all the way through now and he isn't even 2 1/2 yet. They seem to make the learning fun and also cater to what the child likes. My son likes to paint and sure enough almost everyday he has a new picture for me. Seems like with some structure they let the children really explore their interests.
The commenter speaking about the bathroom line didn't get the full picture since she was just visiting. I've picked up my child and he was waiting in a chair, not on the bathroom floor to be changed. I suspect the children the mother viewed weren't listening and were being stubborn.
Overall very happy so far!
There are a wide range, and enough for everyone, of toys, books, puzzles, bikes, etc.
Each teacher is great with communicating to the children.
They were also willing to work with him regarding potty time...although he is fully trained..he needs help from time to time.
My son has expressed, every day, how happy he is there and I can't express enough how comforting it is to know that he is safe and having fun.
I give El Camino 5 stars
Best preschool. It was recommended to me via a friend who's very picky with her kids, and likewise I was apprehensive to my kids being outside my own care. This preschool has the most caring staff and a wholesome and down to earth atmosphere. I moved from the area and now have my children at another private preschool, but I dearly miss El Camino Preschool. There is such kindness and patience demonstrated, and creativity is certainly nurtured. I LOVED the playground, as did my kids, but hands down it was the teachers and director who really made the place what it is. Simply put, a blessing.
