Welcome to Arcadia Episcopal Preschool.
School Mission and Philosophy:
The mission of our school is to provide high-quality child care for working parents in the community. Since 1993, Arcadia Episcopal Preschool has placed an emphasis on developing each child’s individual abilities. We provide a caring, challenging curriculum designed to meet the child’s cognitive, social-emotional, physical and spiritual needs in preparation for daily life and kindergarten.
The philosophy of the school is based on Erik Erickson’s stages of social-emotional development, Jean Piaget’s theories of how children think and learn, and sound principles of physical development. We believe that children learn through play to become enthusiastic and engaged learners.
Our preschool serves as an extension of the family’s child-rearing activity through the care and education of children. Fulfillment of this role requires meeting criteria far beyond the minimum mandated standards through state licensing requirements for health and safety.
We Are Licensed by the State of California, # 191-500590

From the Director Last month was full of surprises! One day a former student, now in enrolled in Arcadia High School, called and asked me for a project to work on to earn his Eagle Scout status. I was thinking about getting the garden ready for the children to plant, so I told him he and his troop could work on that project.
