Preschool Academy

Welcome to Cal Elite Kids’ Educational Academy! We are excited to share our program with you. Cal Elite is licensed to serve children 2.5 – 5 years. We offer the following programs:

Preschool – serves students 2.5 to 5 years. Part time and full time options available.

Cal Elite’s Education Academy is exceptional and distinguished. Our program is led by highly qualified, credentialed teachers with relevant early education teaching experience. Our curriculum is progressive, rich, and engaging. We know that preschool children focus most intently for 10-15 minutes. For this reason, our preschool program operates on developmentally appropriate 20 minutes rotations that allow us to capitalize on our students’ shorter learning cycles. Though the state of California allows 12 students in a class, we always thrived with a productive class size of 8-10 students. We know that high standards, excellent teachers, strong curriculum, appropriate rotations and small class sizes differentiate our program in important ways.

Swim Lessons: Tragically, drowning is the leading cause of death for children ages 1 – 4 years. Learning to swim is a CRITICAL life skill. We do not want any of our students to graduate from our program without becoming confident, proficient swimmers.

Our students have the distinct advantage of having a year round, indoor swim school right on their campus! While swimming in not included in our Academic Preschool programming, we’ve added a financial incentive by offering a 10% discount on swim lessons to all active Cal Elite preschool.

We cannot stress enough the importance of being a strong swimmer. Children do not become strong swimmers in one summer. There is a huge difference between being able to paddle around a bit and being a competent swimmer. We want our students to be comfortable and happy in the water. We want them to able to swim with fluidity. And we want them to be able to swim a reasonable distance – with strength and endurance. Proficient swimmers gain their competency by swimming consistently each week for several years. PLEASE commit to this important goal.
