Whittier Kids Preschool is a mixed-age, play-based, community preschool program at Whittier Elementary for 3-5 year olds. We use play as a natural teaching tool to make learning fun and relevant for our community of young learners.
Whittier Kids School Age Program offers before and after school childcare on site at Whittier Elementary. Through child-centered experiential learning and play, we bolster education, promote new ways of learning, and allow kids to develop social skills in a safe environment.
Why Whittier Kids?
We believe in a holistic learning model that supports learning and development in all domains: social, emotional, cognitive, academic and physical. Teachers present environments and activities that are consciously designed to address these domains through opportunities to explore literacy, science, math, art, music, social studies, and physical education.
