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.

Taking my son here feels like taking him to a family - member's house. I couldn't be happier. It feels good to be able to go to work and not wonder if he's having a good time. The teachers there are genuinely caring and I've seen my son's development blossom with the style of programming they use that incorporates both learning and letting kids be kids at the same time. Highly recommend!

I love this place because they love my daughter. Bottom line.
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.

Both of my sons went to El Camino Preschool, and we had a great experience. The teachers are wonderful, attentive and clearly care about the children and their welfare. They teach a lot of independence, and respect of their peers.  At the pre-school age, social maturity and independence is much more important than academics (in my opinion), so it's great that they stress those aspects of learning.

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.

This preschool is an awesome place to work at! I love coming to work and seeing my children eager to learn and have fun.  Every child is unique and wonderful to build a relationship with. The owner is always being generous to the teacher's and she always encourages me and builds me up to be a better teacher. Most of all I love the parents they are always so thankful and kind. :)

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.

My kids have been going to El Camino Preschool full time since they were two and they love it. My daughter is in the 3-4 year old class now and is learning letters, letter sounds and even tries to write basic words. All the teachers make her feel welcome and know her name.  A gymnastics teacher and a soccer coach come once a week if you choose to enroll in those programs. I love the fact that the school is an old farm house and has a nice homey feel about it.  They have a ton of activities, toys, pets and outdoor space to run around. The kids there are very nice.  There are things I could critique but the bottom line is that my kids like it there. I can't ask for anything better than that and I can't imagine going anywhere else!

We love this preschool. Owner is very educated & involved. The curriculum is very age appropriate. The playground is very large with lots of fun activities for the kids to do. My son is doing well there and pride of good ownership is evident in the staff because they always are upbeat and engaged.

I visited 8 preschools in the Carlsbad area and this one was the best one! I love the director, teachers and the program.  Its a "High Reach" program.   They do take 2 yr olds not potty trained and work with them. That is a huge plus. The kids there all seem to be clean and happy.  The program is also very affordable.  I have been recommending this school to my friends.

This school ROCKS! It came highly recommended from several parents who have had a combined 7 children attend this school and I can see why they love it. My son has a speech delay and straight away his teacher made me feel at home, safe and comforted that he is in the right place. I can leave him each day knowing he's being supported in every way. Finally, a school that actually cares about the child's well being! Thank you Heike for giving Oceanside such a wonderful little "home" to nourish our children's minds and souls!
