HCA Preschool accepts students 2½ to 5 years of age. We are dedicated to providing an excellent early-childhood education experience for our students. We assist parents in developing our students academically, socially, physically and spiritually through a variety of activities and experiences. We nurture creativity in our students, helping them discover the joy of exploration and learning. By the time our students finish our program, they have the knowledge and confidence to have a successful kindergarten experience.

Every teacher in the Preschool must have completed the 12 CORE units required for Preschools by the Department of Social Services. Teachers are given financial incentives to continue their studies in Early Childhood Education allowing our teachers to become better equipped to teach in our ever changing community. All the teachers in the Preschool exceed the state requirements needed for teaching.
