This school is a magical slice of heaven in La Jolla.I have two graduates of this school. The teachers are amazing, the grounds are whimsical, my children learned life long skills and I grew as a parent. I and my children agree best experience ever.For parent involvement,because it is preschool it is just not needed. Most have younger ones to look after. But there are lots of opportunities at for the gala and special art programs.
LJUMCNS is a WONDERFUL place for children to grow and learn in a setting that is so exciting and enticing for children. The indoor and outdoor spaces create an environment that encourages play, learning and exploration. The teachers and staff are so supportive and warm and wonderful.
I couldn't be happier with LJUMCNS. It is an amazaing environment where children are encouraged to learn, play and grow in a play-based setting, which (in my opinion) is ideal for preschoolers. The teachers and staff are caring, warm, and encouraging to the children. The facility has great indoor and outdoor areas. My children adore going to school, and it's evident how much they have thrived at LJUMCNS. As a parental plus: it's been an excellent way for our family to entablish our community. Parent/family involvement is encouraged, and it really does foster a family community feel.
I have 2 graduates and one soon to be graduating from La Jolla Methodist. I LOVE this school. The play-based learning has really given my children the ability to honor their critical thinking skills and inquiry based learning. This nicely segues into the rigors of elementary school and the critical thinking that is needed in education today. The Reggio-Emilia approach is fantastic. Children learn through relevance and the teachers are sure to put academics in there without the children suspecting; to them it is all play. My older children 4th and 2nd grade talk about La Jolla Methodist fondly. The community of parents is involved and with the teachers and administrators makes this school shine!
This is a wonderful nursery school, and the teachers, facilities, variety of play and crafts - both indoor and outdoor are outstanding. Worth every penny, and there is financial aid assistance. One of the key benefits is the community that comes with the parents involved, and the commitment from teachers.
