Our Preschool Program

Welcome!  As the preschool program for Foothill Country Day School, fully accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and licensed by the State of California, The Seedling School inspires children’s natural joy for learning through a fluid mix of child-directed exploration and teacher-led learning activities. 100% of our teachers have 4-year degrees and are fully-credentialed, and use their expertise to foster a warm and safe environment that fosters discovery and growth by exciting and progressively challenging children as they reach the milestones for successful academic and social emotional development.

Seedling children are immersed in a nurturing and rich daily program that stimulates age-appropriate development in academics and social emotional skills such as cooperation, self-direction and empathy.

The Seedling School offers:

•    A challenging curriculum aimed at developing the whole child
•    Performing arts, science, library and monthly field trips
•    Small classes
•    An engaging and active parent community
•    Early drop-off (7:00am) and Extended Day Program (until 6:00pm)
•    Spanish and After School Enrichment Classes

Our Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

Success in Foothill’s Kindergarten depends in large part on a child’s social emotional readiness for the expectations of a more formalized classroom environment.  Seedling’s TK program stimulates and supports children who simply need a little more time to develop the primary skills and social emotional maturity that will prepare them to transition successfully to an appropriately challenging Kindergarten program.

It would be my pleasure to have you visit Seedling and show you why it has been the place where generations of Foothill students first learned to love school.  Contact us today!
