My grand daughter enrolled in this school not long ago ( this summer) and she is so excited about it, speaking about her friends all the time and showing me all her artwork from school.It has a nice green look to it with a striking musical garden. I was at an ice cream social last month where I got to meet most of her friends ( that she spoke about so vividly). Listening to her teacher tell us all the activities that my grand daughter is excited about and about how passionate she is about singing, I couldn't help notice the attention to detail. Very impressed with the teachers. Helped myself to some passion fruit ice cream which I am told is grown right on the school premises. I am very happy with my son's choice of this preschool.

We are so happy to have our kids at Carmel Mountain Preschool! Our son is in his 3rd year and our daughter is in her 1st year and they both love it. The teachers and staff feel like family and all of them know your child. Our son is very active and needed a highly stimulating preschool where he wouldn't be in a classroom all day long. He loves Tinker Hollow where he gets to build with tools. He loves The Glenn where he learns about nature and gets to touch insects and take care of the garden. And then there's the art studio where he gets to do so many fun crafts. All 3 of these places are outdoors! The 3 playgrounds are amazing. The school encourages multidimensional play where the kids can get dirty and stimulate their senses. Our son is always singing songs from school and he shocked me when he was counting by tens in a song. He also surprised me with knowing all the months of the year from a song! Both songs involved hand and body motions which I know helped him stay interested. He wants nothing to do with the alphabet at home but at school he happily learns and can write his name. I could go on and on. What I love most are the amazing teachers who genuinely love our kids and see the best in them. I feel at ease knowing they are so well taken care of. We look forward to sending our 3rd child there when he's ready!

My daughter started going to this preschool this summer right after she turned 3. At first I wasn't sure what to expect, but was glad I made the decision to send her to CMP. A few things that stand out for me - my daughter loves this place for starters, lots of playground time with a few learning sessions sandwiched in between. I am ok with this schedule given that she is just over 3 years old and I would like more emphasis on the social development. She is amongst a very diverse group of children and that's always a good thing. Overall a very fun supportive environment. A great school in a very quiet neighborhood.

Our son has been a student at CMP since summer 2018 and he absolutely LOVES it! He was previously at a chain daycare center and what a difference it is between there and CMP! He was picking up bad habits such as not sharing, hitting, and throwing tantrums which was so not like him. He would come home upset and not tell us why. That was our main reason for seeking something different. Within a few short weeks at CMP our son was thriving! Learning manners, coming home happy, never crying at drop off, and he actually asks to stay longer at school even after he is there 8 hours per day! He constantly talks about his adventures at school, his friends, and his teachers. We could not recommend CMP more highly!

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.

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!

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. 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 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!

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.

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.

We have toured a few schools since our recent move to San Diego and I knew CMP was the one because even my husband and I wanted to spend our days there.... more
