I had the good fortune of visiting this preschool. Coming from Australia, I was blown away by the commitment and dedication the owners have shown at this school. It was unlike any I had seen in the US. This passion has translated to their committed and caring teachers. I loved the fact that they are constantly reflecting on their programs and environments to see how they can continue to provide high quality education and care to their children. Well done Carmel Mountain Preschool!

Simply the most amazing place to bring your kids. They have playgrounds chock full of activities designed to expand the horizons and minds of little tikes. These guys love their job, and it shows in every aspect. A winner in every sense of the word! You can search for a hundred years and not find a preschool as good as this.

This Preschool is Awesome! The teachers are great and even the other teachers make a point to get to know the students in other classes. It is very clean and some amenities include an awesome garden and an art studio that I constantly hear nothing but great news about. The children are always given healthy snacks and are constantly interacting with other kids to help build their social skills. We are very impressed with this school and are so glad we chose it. And our baby girl has grown so much since starting here. Thank you to all the teachers and staff for making the students feel so comfortable and for ensuring our kids are being well taken care of and safe.

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 teacher creates a loving and encouraging classroom where she is excited to go each day and she enjoys a fun ballet class as one of their many extracurricular classes. Carmel Mountain Preschool is wonderful from the staff to the teachers to the place itself and we couldn't be happier being a part of their family.

My husband and I moved to San Diego with our 1 year old daughter back in 2016. My sister watched our daughter for a full year but became pregnant with her second child and could no longer watch our daughter. We were searching for a daycare that was warm, loving, clean, high lyrecommended, safe, small ratio, close to home and work. We took a look at 7 daycare in the area...and Carmel Mountain Preschool was the perfect fit. The staff is caring and attentive, the facility is green and always clean. My daughter is always excited to attend preschool every day. We started her June 2017 and she continues to thrive and learn so much. Each day she surprises me with new songs, remembers her classmates names, always smiling and happy when I drop her off and pick her up. We love Carmel Mountain Preschool and will recommend this place to other working parents.

My daughter has been attending Carmel Mountain Preschool for six months now, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience! She is learning so much and her teachers are very caring and attentive. We will definitely be staying here until Kindergarten!

My grandson attends CMP and I pick him up often. I tell my friends what an amazing preschool this is and all the things offered to Dez to grow and learn in such a wonderful environment. Upon arriving I am always asked for my ID which I love for security reasons. Dez always seems happy to be there. His teachers are great and I see the love they give all the kids when I am there. CMP is a wonderful place and anyone looking for a great school, this is the place!

CMP embraces and encourages creativity, allowing children the opportunity to find what interests them. From the art studio, nature lab, and tinkering lab to outdoor play we have watched our son grow into his own natural abilities. In the classroom, our son is provided with many opportunities to further develop skills like hand-eye coordination, listening, self-control, sharing, and has reached new levels of independence. We could not be happier with our choice to send our son to CMP.

Where to begin....CMP is so very near and dear to our hearts and home. Our daughter, now almost 5 yr. old, started 2 years ago when we weren't happy with our current daycare. We debated if it was the right decision to move her and we've never looked back. We absolutely love the teachers, staff, and owners! It's rare that you get to see and meet the owners. It's family-owned and it shows. Our son, 2.5 yr. old, started this past June and he adores his teachers and is already progressing so much more! I'm always amazed how every single teacher knows the name of my children, even though they're not in their class. The teachers genuinely love my kids. I can go on and on about the incredible extra activities CMP provides, from tinkering studio, live chickens and chic hatchings, garden, science lab, outdoor art studio. CMP has it all and we're so blessed to have found it!

My niece attends this school and I am so excited she gets to be part of such a progressive, fun, safe and caring environment. One that encourages learning and creativity while also teaching the importance of kindness and compassion in her social interactions with others and the world around her. They also have amazing family days that the families get to be a part of and enjoy with their children, and other families and teachers. She's always so excited to share the things she has learned and experienced, and loves going to her daycare!

Carmel Mountain Preschool was where my older daughter started school and her experience was second to none. Carmel Mountain Preschool is our 4 years old daughter's school. She has the same amazing teacher as our oldest, Miss Michelle. We knew that CMP was/is our only choice for our girls. Amazing programs and people. THANK YOU!

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!!!

Erica Valley gave Carmel Mountain Preschool a 5 star review

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.

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!
