Preschool Programs

The City of San Marino's preschool program has been addressing the need for a community-based, part-time preschool for over 10 years.  We offer classes for ages 1-5 years old.

Our mission is to assist in the development of children physically, emotionally, and socially through age appropriate play, music and pre-academic interactive activities. We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment that our students feel welcome and comfortable to learn in.

​Meet & Greet

The San Marino Preschool will be having an orientation day for parents, students, and teachers.  This is a good time to meet the teacher, visit the classroom, meet other students who will be in the class, and ask questions about the upcoming year.
