It was more than fifty years ago that El Montecito Presbyterian Church opened its doors to love and educate young children for the glory of God. This long-standing tradition has made El Montecito Early School an excellent choice for families who want an exceptional Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten education set in a Christian environment, which welcomes and respects children and families of all faiths.
The Early School is a developmentally age-appropriate and environmentally-friendly setting, which encourages curiosity, exploration and discovery. Additionally, we incorporate the use of “the outdoor classroom” in to our daily curriculum to promote good stewardship of our God-given world. We strongly encourage giving back to our wonderful Santa Barbara community by involving the children in many service projects.
El Montecito Early School welcomes children starting as young as 2 1/2 (toilet-trained, please) through the Pre-Kindergarten year. We accept children of all races, religions and nationalities.
Please call us for a tour so you can meet our amazing teachers, see our program and campus. We look forward to meeting you.
