Citrus Heights Preschool originated in 1970. Starting as a one building preschool and adding another building in 1975. We have grown to include pre-k and school-age and have one of the largest and finest infant rooms and play areas in the county.
Children need a safe, loving and nurturing environment to grow. Their surroundings are equally important. We provide the best quality child care for infants thru school-age. As a center we strive to keep rates as low as possible allowing all families the option of affordable quality child care. We try to be as flexible as possible offering variable days and rates and work with varying schedules. We also accept all subsidized government programs. It is our goal to create a home away from home for your children, somewhere they look forward to going everyday.
Children are like sponges always soaking up everything around them. Therefore it is important that we keep curriculum fun and stimulating. Social skills such as sharing and taking turns are also important lessons at this age and are practiced throughout the day. When the weather is nice you can find us out in the yard playing. Our large yard offers children plenty of room to run and explore. Our covered patio also allows us the option of having our lunch and snack outdoors when the weather is warm.
We provide a hot lunch and two snacks. All of our meals and snacks are nutritious and well balanced while still being child friendly.
We embrace all cultures and serve a diverse set of families and children. We have an open door policy, parents are always welcome. We know parents have to work and by providing a safe and loving place to leave their children they can do this with less worry. We hold several family gatherings throughout the year giving teachers and families a fun and relaxed setting to share their child’s experience. Some of our functions include a Mother’s day tea, Father’s day brunch and family night. We also have a Thanksgiving feast for the children and Santa comes for pictures on Christmas Eve. We also have several class parties throughout the year such as Valentine’s Day, Easter etc.
We know a successful program cannot be run without quality teachers and it is important for parents and teachers to work as a team. Therefore open communication between parents and teachers is a must.
We have children whose parents were raised here; we have the highest referral rate in the community. We’ve been serving parents in the community for over 41 years and counting.
We look forward to the opportunity to serve your family. Call anytime to set up a tour and take a look at our facility. Our corporate officers will be pleased to give you a personal tour and answer any questions or concerns.
