Preschools in Los Angeles, CA

Browse our selection of popular Los Angeles preschools and child care to find the right fit for your family. From centers to in-home settings, full-time to part-time schedules, and bilingual to Montessori programs, you'll find the best Los Angeles preschools and child care near you. If your child is a toddler and growing fast - or if you’re survived that phase and she or he is on the cusp of kindergarten but not quite there - you may be considering a preschool for your family. Readiness for preschool is based off development, not just age, but children can often start preschool as young as two and a half years old if they’re also potty trained, can participate in group settings and group activities, can spend significant time with non-family adults and and have the ability to keep a regular, structured daily schedule. If all of this sounds like your child you have many, many options in the greater Los Angeles area to consider sending your child. The first thing to consider may be the transition itself. Will this be the first environment that your child will be spending significant time in that’s not the family home, or has your child been in a daily routine at a daycare or child care facility for years? There’s no reason to think that either scenario won’t lead to a successful transition into preschool. You may just want to consider how this affects your preferences around schedule, for example, and whether you prefer full-time school or part-time. This may also affect how you think about pedagogy and school philosophy, as well; Los Angeles schools overall have a great sense of how their instruction might suit your child, but some curriculums like a Montessori or Waldorf curriculum emphasize self-learning and independence and may be tougher for those students a little younger. As you consider your needs, understand as well the landscape of public and private preschools in Los Angeles. On the public side, the Los Angeles Unified School District - which is the second-largest in the country - offers three major preschool-age programs that could fit your family. First, the district offers a list of LAUSD Early Education Centers (https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/497) that offer high-quality education to students ages two through four. This list includes non-Los Angeles addresses within the district, such as centers in Van Nuys, San Fernando, Reseda, Northridge, Pacoima and Venice, and counts over eighty centers in its membership. Families at or below 70% of California’s median income qualify for care at these centers, although some fees may be required and some proof of family need such as employment, training or seeking employment may also be required. Second, the district offers the The California State Preschool Program Part-Day (CSPP Part-Day) program to more specifically prepare children for kindergarten. This program offers daily 3-hour educational programs (morning or afternoon) which adhere to specific learning and development frameworks from the state to best support children’s achievement and readiness for kindergarten and the formal school years ahead. Similar to the Early Education Centers, families at or below 70% of California’s median income qualify for this program, although fees are not required. Families must apply to the program and the program is limited to three and four year olds, with four year olds given priority if enrollment space is tight. Third, the district offers transitional kindergarten and expanded transitional kindergarten. Transitional kindergarten is available at all LAUSD elementary schools and therefore is broadly available in your neighborhood. Transitional kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program aimed at children who are not quite ready for the big step up that kindergarten can be for young ones. As such, this program tries to bridge that gap. Transitional kindergarten is designed for children who’re turning five after the fall school year starts, so check your child’s birthday against the guidance LAUSD provides online. As transitional kindergarten is preparing for kindergarten, as well, there are no income limits or requirements for participation and all families in the LAUSD may check their child’s eligibility. On the private side, Los Angeles has one of the largest and more diverse sets of private preschool programs in the country. There are large, national chain locations such as Kindercare and Bright Horizon facilities all the way down to single-location, owner-director preschools across the Valley and through the heart of Los Angeles. Pedagogies range from play-based to outdoors or nature-oriented schools, and there are a variety of bilingual and religious preschools as well as you’d expect in a city as rich and diverse as Los Angeles. Private preschools may offer more flexible hours, too, as well as more options for before-school or after-school care. Private preschools are still regulated by the state of California, as well, and adhere to strict licensing standards and inspection requirements to keep students safe.
