School Mission and Philosophy
The mission of our school is to provide high-quality child care for working parents in our community. Since 1993, Arcadia Episcopal Preschool has placed an emphasis on developing each child’s individual abilities. We provide a caring, emergent 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.

Parent involvement helps with communication between home and school. We ask all families in the school to contribute five hours per calendar year.
We would be happy to offer prospective parents a tour on Zoom. If you would like to have an on-campus tour, please call ahead for an appointment.
We are proud that we have a low turnover of teachers during the year. Our staff members are selected through a rigorous screening process. All staff members have current CPR and first-aid training. In addition to having experience and a love for children, each teacher is knowledgeable in providing activities that produce efficient learners.
The teachers attend a yearly in-service training to keep them up to date on new discoveries in the field of early-childhood education. Some teachers are bilingual in German, Indonesian, Mandarin and Cantonese. The staff is also required to meet standards set by California Licensing and requirements set by the Los Angeles Episcopal Diocese.
We welcome preschool children who would benefit from our program regardless of race, sex, creed, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin. Parents seeking to have their child attend Arcadia Episcopal Preschool must fill out an application form and pay the application fee of $75, which is nonrefundable. The school accepts children on a first come, first served basis.
