Our Programs

At The Way Preschool, we believe that early childhood education, that is intentional, proactive, timely, and above all loving is vital. We believe, in curating a teaching and learning environment that serves these values.  We want every child that graduates from our center to have a realistic and obtainable trajectory towards health in all aspects of their life!  As a leadership team it is our mission to provide an every day environment of safety, consistency and professionalism!

We are a Reggio-Emilia Inspired faith based preschool serving children ages 3 to 5 years old.  We are nestled in the beautiful San Marcos countryside a few minutes away from the 78 and 15 freeways.  The Way offers a unique screen-less learning environment so the little minds at our center can be saturated amidst healthy stimulation and proper nurturing care. Additionally, we are proud to offer one of the largest outdoor classrooms and outside play spaces in North County, San Diego.

  • What is the school's educational philosophy/curriculum?
    We are a faith-based preschool that follows the Reggio Emilia approach to learning. This approach creates a co-learning environment where teachers learn with the children and work in a lateral relationship rather than a hierarchical one. Reggio Emilia also revolves around the children’s senses, relying on sight, sound, touch and even taste and smell to assist with learning. As a result, Reggio Emilia classrooms tend to look different than your average preschool with large common spaces, natural elements and lots of accessible and curiosity-sparking materials.
  • How old does my child need to be to attend The Way?
    The Way is a Preschool and TK, serving children ages 3 to 5 years old. All students enrolled in The Way must be at least 3 years old.
  • Does my child need to be potty trained prior to starting school at The Way?
    Children enrolled at The Way Preschool must be toilet trained before attending preschool. Children must be wearing underwear, not pull-ups prior to starting at The Way.
  • What is the parent/school communication at The Way?
    We believe that communication between home and school is extremely important. Which is why we use the brightwheel app as the main way to communicate with parents. Brightwheel is an all-in-one app where you can stay connected to your child throughout the day. Get real-time updates on your phone and tablet so you never miss a moment!
  • What are your school's hours?
    Full Day Program: 8am - 5pm Half Day Program: 8am - 12pm
  • Does my child need to have immunizations prior to starting school at The Way?
    Yes. For each child enrolled, we are required by the State of California to maintain accurate, up-to-date, immunization records. Immunization records are required prior to your child’s first day of attendance and need to be updated whenever your child receives a new immunization. Children who require updated immunizations after initial enrollment will be denied admittance to the center if proof of the updates are not submitted by the required due dates.
