Carmel mountain preschool is one of the best preschools in San Diego. My daughter has been going to this school for more than one year and she loves all the teachers in the school . Teachers are so caring and lovable. She likes the extra curricular activities such as tinkering lab, painting and gardening. In addition to extra curricular activities they also teach well. She learns new stuff everyday and her communication has improved a lot. Sometimes I am amazed to hear the words that she uses to construct her sentence. This school has turned my daughter into a happy kid. Their summer camp is so much fun and kids love to go to school during their summer holidays. My daughter loves the perk club organized by coach Jeff. They also have yoga ,ballet and hip hop dance class. They do celebrate almost most of the festivals that are celebrated around the world. So the kids get to learn about other cultures around this world. The parents are happy if their kids are happy at school. We are very happy that we chose Carmel mountain preschool for our daughter.
Our son has been at CMP since he was two and is now three and a half and loving it. We are two full time working parents with demanding jobs and knowing that our son is learning so much from taking turns, to tracing his name, to routines and respecting and loving his friends gives us great comfort since he spends 5 full days a week there. The staff and teachers are amazing not only with the children but also with supporting the parents in transitioning to a preschool environment. We have seen such positive growth in our son from his amazing communication skills, consciousness of others feelings and general respect for others. He, and we, also love the diversity of programs CMP offers from the art studio to tinkering and the glen. We recommend CMP to any family looking for excellent care and growth of their precious littles.
Our daughter has been going to Carmel Mountain Preschool since December 2020. She was having some difficulties due to Covid. After the stay-home policy, she became scared of everybody, including other kids. We have seen her expand her development by doing fun stuff, improving her relationship with her classmates and teacher. We like the outdoor space and the time she spent there, how fun of a time they have in the Art Studio crafting, and of course, The Glenn. We couldn’t ask for better teachers. Ms. Maddi, Mrs. Cassandra, and Ms. Emma have cared for our little one, making her feel safe and comfortable.
