La Cristianita offers a varied program, consisting of both preschool and extended daycare.

Preschool hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon for children ages 2 1/2 -5 years. Our toddler program is available for a full day session only.

The program runs from September through June (following the same calendar as the local public schools). A special summer program is offered during the months of July and August.

Extended day care hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.


Please note: ALL children attend preschool classes, whether they are designated preschool or daycare. The only difference is the "preschool only" students attend from 9:00 a.m. until noon. "Drop In" care is offered to preschool children who need occasional care before 9:00 a.m. and/or after 12:00 p.m. The fee for drop in care is $6.00/hr. with a 6 hour per week maximum.


Each member of our staff is a dedicated and compassionate professional who meets and exceeds the State of California guidelines for a qualified preschool teacher. We are dedicated to providing loving and understanding care for each child.


Our summer program is a lot of fun!  Through out the summer months we provide the children with a day camp type atmosphere.  We will have water days when we wear bathing suits and set up pools, sprinklers and water slides on the playground.  We will be doing a lot of fun cooking activities, creative art, and movie days.  We will have specific themes each week and have visits from some very special guests that involve the themes.  Summer is registered in one-month increments - either July only, August only, or July and August.  The activity fee paid at the time of registration will be used to cover the cost of the extra special guest visitors as well as needed supplies for the summer program.
