About the Preschool
Foothills' Preschool has been serving the community for over 40 years. We offer a high quality program where children two to five years-of-age are placed in classrooms with a low student-to-teacher ratio. All of our teachers have completed coursework in Early Childhood Education. A warm, loving environment is maintained that also offers exciting learning opportunities in all areas of curriculum, including faith formation.
Foothills' Preschool offers an inviting and stimulating environment that will enhance your child's learning experience. Our program provides opportunities for your child to grow in all areas including independence and self-esteem, reading readiness, math and science, motor coordination, creative experiences, social skills and spiritual awareness.
About the Infant Center
The Foothills Faith Academy Infant Center was started in 2013 and immediately filled all of its spots.
We maintain a 3:1 faculty to child ratio and pay very close attention to the needs of the children and all of the regulations and requirements from the State of California for the care of infants. Children attending the Faith Academy Infant Center will learn vital early social skills, will stay on a closely monitored schedule and have an inexhaustible source of toys to play and create with.
It's easy to make payments online, through our 'donation' page.
