Who We Are
The La Canada United Methodist Children's Center is a ministry of the La Canada United Methodist Church. We are a small, state licensed, family-oriented preschool for children ages 2 - 5 serving the La Canada Community. We offer year-round programs with flexible and extended hours and toilet training is not necessary for enrollment and there is not additional charge for children in diapers.
Since our inception in 1989, we have provided children with a balanced experience of intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development that helps prepare them for future learning. It is our philosophy that toddler and preschool-aged children learn best through play. We encourage children to use exploration and creativity to grow into new ideas and devlop their own thoughts and ideas. Our teachers are trained in Early Childhood Education and strive to assist the children in building a foundation for school readiness skills. We have also found this also enables confidence in students as well.
The La Canada United Methodist Children's Center is a non-profit, Christian school that welcomes children of all faiths and backgrounds. Our classes consist of low teacher/child ratio in a caring and supportive atmosphere. We foster play based education with Art, Music, Science, Math, and Kid Fit. Our teachers encourage activity within our extensive natural outdoor play space.
Our Most Current Teacher/Child Ratios:
1:4 for 2 Year Olds
1:5 for 3 Year Olds (Younger)
1:8 for 3 Year Olds (Older)
1:8 for 4 and 5 Year Olds
