There are so many preschool choices in the SCV, it was difficult weeding through all of the choices! We are so pleased that we settled upon St. Stephen's in Valencia. The programs are thoughtful and enriching, the staff are friendly, experienced and knowledgable and the entire place just seems to run VERY smoothly! The special activities and curriculum are really wonderful; the program hours and prices are terrific and the grounds are spacious, well-equipped and highly condusive to learning and play!
The programs are particularly suited to families with an at-home parent and/or flexible work schedules, since they really offer only half-day programs. There is no extended care beyond an hour before or an hour after- which would mean that the maximum time your child could spend would be 3 days/week, 5 hours a day. On the other hand, since most parents of children at this school do stay at home, there is an extraordinary level of hands-on involvement in the classroom in terms of volunteerism and overall presence.
My children have been very happy here and I would definitely say I would recommend it to anyone!
