Hill & Dale Family Learning Center
Hill & Dale Family Learning Center is an outgrowth of a privately owned preschool operated in Pacific Palisades for over thirty years. When the owners, Eleanor and Lee Kendall, no longer wished to continue operating their school, a group of Hill & Dale parents decided to reorganize it as a non-profit corporation run by a parent-community Board. Inspired by the strong educational philosophy of the Kendalls, we established the school with the following objectives: To run a top quality educational child care program based on a strong guiding philosophy; To attract and develop a staff extensively trained in early childhood education and development; To compensate that staff with competitive wages and benefits; and To establish and nurture a strong parent education component which encourages parents to take an active role in understanding their child's development and participating in their education. We opened our doors in September 1979 at 1512 Pearl Street in Santa Monica with 10 children. Less than a year later, we were at full enrollment with 25 children and have had a continual waiting list since that time. Judith Brunk became Executive Director, a position she still holds today. Hill & Dale moved its operations in August of 1984 to the business development at Colorado Place (Yahoo Center). This move into larger facilities offered new horizons for promoting quality educational child care and facilitating parenting education and skills. Hill & Dale at Yahoo Center has also been a highly successful experiment in developer-assisted creation of new child care facilities in the Santa Monica community. As the program grew and the demand for infant care became greater, we opened our second Center in August of 1987 in a converted firehouse owned by the City of Santa Monica at the west end of Clover Park on Ocean Park Blvd. Hill & Dale holds a lease with the city for use of the building and Watt Industries, a local developer, committed funding and construction assistance necessary for building renovation and set u
St. Timothy School Pre-K
St. Timothy School is a Pre-K through 8th Grade Catholic School that was established in 1958. For over 50 years, we have educated generations of children, instilling them with character, compassion and values for life. Under the nurturing guidance of our dedicated faculty, children at St. Timothy School are challenged academically and taught character-building skills that will support them their entire lives. We understand that the years between four and fourteen are the most intensely productive and vital learning years in a child's development. We know that early educational experiences help shape the kind of learners our students will become. Therefore, we focus on developing a spirit of inquiry and a joy in learning in our students, which helps them realize and build on their academic potential. St Timothy School is a small school, deliberately. Small class sizes enable us to focus on each child as an individual, to understand what motivates them and to support their academic development. Our classes foster a feeling of family ? a supportive climate of trust and understanding, community-based values, and teamwork. In this environment, children form positive and enduring relationships with classmates and teachers. St. Timothy School students and faculty come from a wide variety of racial, ethnic, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our diversity enriches our students scholastic experience, and helps each child discover his or her own uniqueness and infinite worth as a human being ? and that of their peers and teachers.

John Adams Child Development Center

We believe that each child is an individual with unique needs, interests, and abilities. Growth and learning occur is a sequential manner and can be... fostered by providing children with experiences that encourage interaction with peers, materials, and adults. We will work in partnership with each child's parent to facilitate the individual growth and development of their child. This will promote a better understanding of the impact that the culture, linguistic, and ethnic practices of the child's family has upon the child. A variety of developmentally appropriate activities will be offered under the guidance of qualified adults, that foster cognitive, social, creative, and physical development. Both group and individual experiences are provided in order for children to develop a sense of belonging and to still be able to purse their own specific interests. Our Center's environment encourages exploration, discovery, decision-making, play, and social interaction to foster self-esteem, competence, and autonomy in children. PROGRAM: The Santa Monica Preschool Collaborative serves children who are 3 years through 5 years of age. The ratio of child to adult never exceeds eight to one. The staff has designed a flexible program that responds to the needs of each individual child. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate with an emphasis on the development of the child's positive self-image. Our program is inclusive. We serve children of all developmental levels and abilities. Children who have special needs are enrolled in our regular classes. We believe that all children benefit when they play and learn together under the guidance and supervision of well-trained teachers. ELIGIBILITY: The Santa Monica Preschool Collaborative welcomes all children regardless of race, creed, color, religion, or national origin. Children ages 3 years through 5 years of age may attend the program according to space availability. Families, who meet the State guidelines for subsidized care, and those who qualify for subsidy through the CalWORKs childcare program, will have first priority for enrollment. Fees are based on a sliding scale that is used by the State of California Department of Social Services If there are spaces available after all subsidized families have been enrolled, then “full-fee” families can be enrolled. The Santa Monica Preschool Collaborative is a group foundation made possible by: Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Santa Monica College District
