My son started here just a few months ago and we are in love with everything! The grounds are beautiful, the curriculum and activities for the kids are wonderful and every single teacher is awesome. They already all know my son's name and make sure to say hello to him every day. He had a tough transition the first month but they made sure to show him extra love and kept us updated and now he's running to the door. We are so excited to be a part of the Carmel Mountain Preschool community for many years to come!

Very good friends of mine (The Freys) sends their 3 year old, Abbey, to Carmel Mountain Preschool, and she LOVES it! They do all sorts of fun activities (building robots out of boxes, feeding chickens, tinker lab, etc). They even had a "snow" day in July, which looked like a blast! The facility is clearly dedicated to expanding the horizons of the little ones in their care!

My daughter started here this past summer and it has been about 2 months since she has been attending CMP. We had grandma watching her for the past 2 years and my daughter loved being with grandma all day so we were worried about the transition to an all day school, but CMP has been fantastic for our daughter. She loves coming and has even said that she'd rather go to school than to stay at home with grandma. She has had Ms. Aishlinn and Mrs. Chrystal, and my daughter loves her 2 teachers! They post photos up on a separate Shutterfly account everyday which we love to see and I greatly appreciate this as I feel like I get to see what my daughter does each week! There are always so many fun activities for the kids and I send her to school each day knowing that she is in good and caring hands. I am so happy that we decided to send her to CMP and am excited for her future years at the preschool. I would whole-heartedly recommend CMP to anyone looking for a great environment for your little ones to grow.

We are so happy with Carmel Mountain Preschool. It's unlike most preschools we've experienced because the facility has several outdoor spaces built into the learning. It is a great environment for our daughter to explore, learn and grow. Her teachers create a loving and encouraging classroom where she is excited to go each day. Carmel Mountain Preschool is wonderful from the staff to the teachers to the place itself and we couldn't be happier being apart of their family.

We love this preschool ! Our 3y/o has grown tremendously in the short time she has been here. There is a wonderful balance with helping the children grow emotionally , socially and intellectually. We appreciate that the teachers really focus on fostering the children's independence. Also the staff does a great job of communicating with the parents. My wife and I are confident that this is the best place our daughter can be right now. We highly recommend CMP!

We love this preschool so much that after our twins were there for one year for pre-k then not for two years, we came back again for our youngest! We had such a great experience there the first time, we didn't even look elsewhere!

If you are looking for a wonderful pre-school in the Ranch Penesquito /Poway area I highly recommended Carmel Mt. Preschool. As a former pre-school/kindergarten teacher for 35 years I am deeply impressed with the teachers who are very nurturing and kind. I have witnessed my grandaughter's growth from 2 to 5 yrs socially, academically, physically and mentally. She has developed into a smart and caring person. My grandson who is 3 loves school!! His is now more vocal and independent. Much of the Montessori philosophy is implemented at CMP, including centers for literacy,math and science. My grandchildren are fortunate to attend this school.I love attending the many parents social activities as well as the children's activities.....Needless to say, this place makes you feel welcomed!!

My niece absolutely loves it here! Whenever we talk about what she learned at school, her enthusiasm is always through the roof. It looks like she's always having a blast in the photos I see as well. I'm very happy she's at a place that can give her such a great education and entertainment as well. I highly recommend Carmel Mountain Preschool!

I am a dance and yoga teacher and I teach at over 15 preschools in San Diego! I chose to send my son to CMP as this is the best preschool in San Diego. This school has the best teachers!!! The directors and owners of the school put so much love and energy into the school and the happiness of the kids that it shows as soon as you walk in there. Every week there is something exciting happening at the school from splash days, bringing literature to life, to touching insects in the glen. We could not be happier about our choice of school and we are so happy to be apart of the CMP family!!!!

Enrolling my children in the Carmel mountain preschool was the best decision I have made for my family's future. For I just returned from Afghanistan and am astonished how much both of my children have grown intellectually. I mean my 3 year old comes home each week teaching me new Spanish she learn from her teach. And my 1 1/2 year is leaps and bounds beyond her sister, at that age, which I wholeheartedly believe is due to the wonderful job CMP staff is doing.

I have 5 year twin boys that attend Carmel Mountain Preschool. As soon as I took a tour of this school, I knew this was the right school for my boys. Their curriculum surpassed all the other schools I visited. My boys have been learning math, reading, writing and science. The school has an amazing art studio, playgrounds for different age groups and a garden for them to enjoy. My boys are excited to go to school every day to see what they will learn next. The teachers work with each child to build their confidence and skills. I also like that the teachers send me pictures of the activities my child is doing throughout the week. I am very thankful that I found such a loving, safe and wonderful preschool for my kids to attend. If you are searching for a preschool, I would highly recommend checking out CMP.

We love CMP! Our son started in June and we couldn't be happier with our experience here. The teachers are fantastic and regularly send updates and pictures to us to share all of the fun activities he gets to take part in. It has been amazing to see him come home excited about the art he has produced, trips to the Glenn, or other fun experiences like snow day. We have seen so much growth in him in a short period of time and he is loving every minute of it. It is wonderful to know that he is in such great hands!

I have 5 year old twin boys in the Kinder Prep class and they are excited to go to school everyday. The teacher engagement and the student-teacher ratio is outstanding. We looked at a lot of other TK/Kinder Prep schools, but CMP had the best curriculum. They get to enjoy learning everything from reading, science, art, and math. I highly recommend everyone to see for yourself!

My son is 3 1/2 and has been attending Carmel mountain preschool since he was 2. We absolutely love this preschool. Every teacher has been amazing. They greet him in the morning with a big hug and he is happy to see them. The day is filled with lots of educational and fun activities. He comes home and I can't wait to hear about his day. This school is clean and organic is so many ways. They have a glenn where the kids can learn about animals, gardening and get creative. I love it that they bring visitors from the fire department and police department to show off the equipment for the kids. This school keeps the parents are very involved too. There are so many opportunities for families to come together at the school for "snow days," concerts, and class parties. I cannot wait for my younger son to be old enough to go to this school!!!

My son started at CMP just 4 months ago in the toddler/2 year old program and I couldn't be happier. He's a very social and active child so I love that there is so much for the kids to learn and experience with art classes, the Glenn, and the many different programs put on by the school!! I cannot say enough good things about his teachers, Claudia and Ann Marie! They have made not only my son feel loved at school but they give me such comfort every morning after I drop him off that I found the right place for him! All the staff and teachers are wonderful and they treat you like one big family!! Thank you CMP for taking such great care of my child!

I am a full time student, and my husband works for the military. When my husband and I found out he would be getting stationed in Afghanistan we knew we would need to find a place for our daughters to not only blossom, but to feel at home. After plenty of research and school visits, CMP won us over. We have a 3 year old and almost a two year old enrolled. We loved the fact that they had an 18mo program and that both our daughters could attend together. During the visit, we absolutely loved seeing how every teacher knew each child's name (even if they aren't in their class). There's over 300 children enrolled and no matter who we passed by, hellos were given with names and smiles and I honestly think that's what did it for us. It's been about 4 months since they started and I couldn't be happier with their cognitive & social development. My oldest daughter loves her teacher Miss Marisol. She literally runs to her every morning and it makes me feel so warm inside knowing I'm leaving my daughter's little heart happy at a place she feels comfortable, safe, and loved! My little one is always welcomed by her two sweet & caring teachers Miss May & Miss Yukie. No complaints here. All the activities and events involved in the month of December proved to my husband and I that we made the right decision in choosing CMP.

Our family really loves CMP!! The first time we toured, I was so impressed with the facilities and all the different learning activities the kids do throughout the day. It stands out so much from the rest and we plan to keep going here.

My son (3 yo) loves this place. He knows the days he goes there and looks forward to it during the week. His teachers, Ms. Kara and Ms. Mallory, are awesome and he comes home each week surprising us with how quick he is learning.

My daughter has been in two other daycare/preschools and Carmel Mountain Preschool is better than the other two by miles. We will keep her there as long as we can! She is in the Toddler class, and the two teachers are amazing - always smiling, active, teaching the children to explore their environment, build communication skills, and interact with others all while staying safe. When we ask her where she's going tomorrow, our toddler shrieks the two teachers names with delight. They email us action photos of our daughter a couple times a month and of some of the fun events they plan. They recreated a pumpkin patch, a snow day...they're always thinking of ways to stimulate the kids, and they have so much fun!

After touring several other preschools that were just ok we were beyond excited after seeing CMP campus. Our daughter has been attending for over 5 months now and we couldn't be happier. The staff and teacher are top notch and always seem happy and attentive. Our daughter is excited to go to school everyday so we know that we made the right choice. I highly recommend CMP to any parent looking for a preschool.

Jennifer Franklin gave Carmel Mountain Preschool a 5 star review

Living so far from our families, my husband and I found the process of trying to find the perfect preschool/ daycare center for our daughter to be difficult and stressful. It was important to us that we found a trustworthy place that felt like family since our daughter would be spending so much time there during the week. Thankfully, Carmel Mountain Preschool made that decision so easy for us! It has been a year and a half now and I still cannot say enough positive things about the teaching and management staff here. All of the teachers know every child by name, the curriculum and activities are spectacular, and the organic snacks that are prepared for the children by a professional chef are just the icing on the cake. What is most important to us though is that our daughter actually wakes up every morning absolutely excited to go to school. We are thankful to have found such a loving, caring, and safe place that she has been able to grow and truly blossom in. Thank you CMP!
