At Ladera Community Church Preschool, we follow a play-based, developmentally appropriate approach to teaching and learning. Our programs focus on the whole child, encouraging a positive sense of self while fostering physical, intellectual, social and emotional development. Our mission is to offer all children a safe, inviting and nurturing environment that stimulates curiosity and creativity while inspiring a lifetime love of learning.

LCC Preschool is a non-profit, NAEYC-accredited preschool that welcomes children of any culture or religious background, and provides need-based tuition assistance. We have low child to teacher ratios in all our classrooms, and we are also a local model for incorporating children with special needs. We offer half-day programs for children aged 2 to 5 years.

We are located in a lovely, rural setting on the campus of Ladera Community Church in Portola Valley, minutes from Highway 280.
