I am a teacher with a Masters Degree in Child Development from Michigan State University, and the parent of a pre-schooler. After visiting 10 plus pre-schools in the Costa Mesa area, I found Coastal to be the best by far. The staff is loving to the children, professional, and cutting edge for California. The cottage style building is bursting with student work and happy energy from all staff and students. The staff is educated on age appropriate materials,lessons, and expectations. The facility is very accomodating to meet the needs of children and parents. I am thrilled my child has had a chance to begin his education at Coastal.
