Mount Hermon’s Preschool is a California licensed facility and program, run by certified professionals, specializing in child development and preschool education. Your children will be prepared for their school years—and more—as they grow socially, intellectually, physically and spiritually. We incorporate science, art, language, music, dance,water play, climbing, movement, mud, bubbles, block play and dramatic play into the everyday learning experience. This program runs from September through May. Check out the following options and contact us with any questions!

The children do science experiments, work jobs from Math Their Way and get to do all the other fun things the other children do on these three days.

Curriculum Used
  • Math Their Way: We use just the beginning concepts and are developing "Workjobs" that will reenforce counting concepts. Here is a link to some more information on counting with children.
  • Workjobs: This refers to "jobs" the children get to do with teachers in a more directed time of play. There is a specific "job" such as matching, counting with one to one correspondance, or sorting. These are being created by our staff from Math Their Way.
  • Handwriting Without Tears: This is a developmental program that we use with all our classes. It incorporates music, rhymes, and much more, to expose children to concepts that are necessary before they move on to actually writing with a pencil. In our Pre-K class, the children do use pencils and other writing tools to write capital letters in the Handwriting Without Tears way.

Financial Help

Dear Parents,

If you would like to request financial assistance for a portion of the tuition, please call 831-335-9420 or email playschool@mounthermon.org to make an appointment to come in and discuss your needs for financial help. 

Sincerely,

Kahleen Edeal, Director


What families qualify for help?

Well, where do I start? Since we depend on the money from the tuition payments and what ever is available in the scholorship fund to run our program, the families that are not paying for any other programs for their child or paying for any other “fun” things due to stressed finances are what this is for.

How much is available?

We currently depend upon people donating to our scholarship fund. Please feel free to share this opportunity to give to our program with your friends and family.
