Welcome to Parkcrest Preschool,
a place to learn, connect, and grow... together! Lic # 191602162

A developmental-interaction point of view is the focus on the whole child; the cognitive (intellectual), the effectual (feelings), the sensory-motor (physical), and the spiritual. We know that a child learns best when he/she has a sense of personal wel

Last week, we proved that kid-made paper bag pumpkins were far better than real pumpkins. This week, these pumpkin suncatchers are putting those paper bags to the test!


In October, our classrooms feature dramatic play Pumpkin Patches. And in our Pumpkin Patches, we feature kid-made pumpkins… which, if we’re honest, are truly better than regular pumpkins!


Prep Week has begun, which means the scrubbing and planning and organizing is underway!! But first things first, of course… A team field trip for pedicures!

Well folks, the rumors are true.

Parkcrest Preschool will extend its current schedule to offer afternoon care hours for the 2023-2024 school year!

Now that school year won't begin until September 2023 and that might seem like it's really far away... BUT Priority Registration for the 2023-2024 school year opens on Monday, January 30!

All the details have been updated on our website. Check it out now and be ready to reserve a spot for your child while space is still available.


Joy to the world, the Lord has come. Let earth receive her King! Merry Christmas from all your friends at Parkcrest Preschool.


How are you all spending your Christmas Eve? Any special "must do" traditions in your family?

We'd love to hear about it!


If you don't always love to let your preschooler practice with scissors at home, send them to us... We love (kid-safe) scissor skill-building!


With just a few more days before Christmas, we are relishing our last moments in our holiday-themed learning centers.


Gross motor practice on the playground is just as important as academic practice in the classroom!


Isn't there something so precious and special about Christmas decorations made by little preschool hands?


Playdoh is always fun, but its even BETTER when it smells like gingerbread!


Our Nature Explorers gathered leaves, twigs, and stones on a nature walk, then created their own pinch pots to decorate with their findings!


Apparently Elves on Shelves also show up at preschools... with gifts!


Long Beach birds aren't going hungry this winter, as long as our preschool friends have anything to say about it!


Science is about hands-on investigation, exploring different materials... and of course, FUN!


This friend is determined to make it ALL the way across the balance beam!


It's never too early to practice those wrapping skills!


This particular project will be a special feature at Jingle Jam and we can't wait for you to see it!


Would you look at that line?! These little friends have been working hard on their self-control and walking feet.


Let the Jingle Jam rehearsals begin!


Sure, the playground is great for running, jumping, and sliding. And it's also great for chilling in a hanging tree pod!


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


The Nativity story is the most important part of December.. and yet, how easy is it to forget to focus on Jesus during such a busy month?!

These Family Advent Jars will provide a fun and simple way to engage in the true meaning of the season as a family.

Will you share a photo of your finished project with us?
