St. Dominic Preschool Philosophy

We believe in the education of the whole child. We offer each child a stimulating environment where spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growths are nurtured through a well-planned curriculum presented by caring, well-trained teachers.

We believe it is the responsibility of the teachers and parents to help their child develop a set of standards and morals by giving him/her careful advice and guidance. This includes patience, understanding, and acceptance of others, regardless of social, ethnic, or religious backgrounds.

With careful guidance and direction, the child will learn to make the right decisions and choices.


The State of California, Department of Social Services, licenses St. Dominic Preschool/Day Care Center. The facility is limited to handling only ambulatory children and personnel, and is licensed to care for up to 30 children per day. To be considered for enrollment, a child must be at least 3 years old on or before Sept.1, toilet trained, and able to follow basic directions and instructions.
