Resurrection Lutheran Preschool Huntington Beach

Looking back, I had no idea just how important choosing the right preschool would turn out to be when touring schools for my oldest daughter a few years ago.

But after experiencing the transition from preschool to now Kindergarten, I realize that a child’s preschool experience plays a huge part in their Kindergarten readiness. And I am not just talking about academically, but socially and emotionally as well.

So at this tender stage when these little precious humans are learning so much about how to interact with others in a classroom setting, to me, it is important to carefully consider the right preschool for your family. Our preschool truly has become like a second home to my daughters. And you want that home to be filled with loving people that want the best for your child!

Resurrection Lutheran Preschool is a Christian preschool in Huntington Beach that was brought to Tiny Oranges by one of my readers, Dana, and the school subsequently became one of our OC Biz Guide Sponsors. You can visit their listing under “Preschools.”

Offering programs for children ages 2 years 6 months through pre-kindergarten, they have 2-day (Tuesday/Thursday), 3-day (Mon/Weds/Fri) and 5-day classes (Mon-Fri) from 9am – 12pm with an optional “Lunch Bunch” available Monday – Thursday from 12pm – 1:30pm.

And, for those of you who stress about this part, they do NOT have to be potty trained to be in the program *sigh of relief!*

They also have a six-week summer program which is 3 days a week (Tues-Thurs). I think this is an awesome summer schedule to allow you to have your Mondays and Fridays open for travel. This year, the summer program runs from June 19th – July 26th.

When chatting with Dana on the phone (by the way she is completely darling and I felt like we were BFF’s) I asked her what it was she loved so very much about this program and these were the key points:

Small class sizes! With an approximately 1:6 ratio, teachers are able to provide individual attention and small group interaction.

* The loving, caring and supportive teachers who are dedicated to a child’s successful transition to Kindergarten.

* The school’s colorful, creative and cozy environment. 

* The unique daily music enrichment program with a piano teacher.

* Twice monthly chapel.

* Their wonderful Preschool Director who has over 35 years experience with preschool aged children.

* The emphasis on making sure every child is academically, emotionally, socially and physically ready for the big step to Kindergarten.

* Affordable. Now I know this is very subjective, but you can click here to see the tuition rates and if it would be affordable for your family. Siblings receive a 10% discount and they also offer a 10% discount for full payment at the beginning of the school year which roughly equals 1 month of tuition free. Nice!

My biggest piece of advice to anyone looking into preschools is to go out there and TOUR them!  I think I visited about 6 different preschools that all seemed good, but it wasn’t until my 6th stop did I know I had found “The One” for us.

You will get the same feeling.

Enrollment for Summer and Fall 2012 is coming up on March 21st, 2012 at 8:45am, so you will want to contact them ASAP to get more information if you are interested in looking at this school. You are also welcome to stop by anytime on weekdays between 9am – 12pm for a tour.

Visit their website or contact Director Judy Giem via email at judy.giem {@} or 714.962.3919 for more information.

Thank you Dana for sharing your preschool home with us!
