The Official South Bay Community Preschool Website
South Bay Community Preschool is a non-profit organization supported by tuition only. We do not discriminate in regards to race, color, or creed. SBCP is licensed for 75 children ages 2 to 5 years old, by the State of California, Department of Health.
We keep our 2 -5 year old class ratio between 8 to 12 children. Lower ratio’s allow for more one on one attention with your children. In addition, we are also licensed for an infant-toddler program ages 6 weeks to 2 years old, by the State of California, Department of Health.
Our Infant program is licensed for 8 children with a 4:1 ratio. We operate the school year-round with a special summer program. All our staff meets or exceeds the requirements set by the State of California. Our teachers are born-again Christians who are concerned about the needs of the children and the community. We emphasize age appropriate Christian concepts that children can understand such as (love, kindness, sharing, helping others, etc.). We have a special spiritual emphasis day once a week. This usually consists of a Bible story, life related concepts, Christian songs, and prayer. PROGRAM We are a Preschool that offers an enrichment program from 9:00 am until 12:00 p.m. We offer special units of study such as: safety, firefighters, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, zoo animals, under the sea life, and phonics in which we integrate Christian values.

- Christian Curriculum

We have been in operation for over 37 years and have a well trained staff with almost a zero turnover rate. We take great pride in that, the longevity of our staff range from 4 years to 20 years with our program. Our Preschool is affiliated with South Bay Baptist Church located on the same campus. The Church began the Preschool because they wanted to minister to our community. We are convinced that Christian love and nurture has a powerful influence during the critical formative years. Yet, we do not see our Preschool as a substitute for parental responsibilities, but as a supportive team member. Parents are the most significant adults in their young child’s life. For this very reason we want to provide help for every parent in this sometimes overwhelming task. OUR PHILOSOPHY It is our desire to provide for your child a Christian atmosphere with a loving, nurturing, concerned, and competent staff. Recognizing that children learn mostly through their play experiences, we have carefully planned a well-balanced program that will help the child learn through all of their senses. We are a developmental school that works with the A Beka Curriculum, as well as, Christian based, age appropriate, lesson plans that teach little ones about the love of Jesus. We will encourage and guide your child in developing their language skills, social skills, self-expression, creativity, independence, hand-eye coordination, large and small motor development, good personal and health habits, and good behavior habits through the day. Pre-reading skills are developed throughout the day’s activities that include stories and music. Basic skills such as number-letter recognition, colors, and shapes will be presented as the child is ready. Pre-K classes are introduced to SPA phonic program. (Self-Pronouncing Alphabet that is geared specifically for 4-5 year olds.) We work hard to assure that we introduce all the materials that will be on the Kindergarten placement test.
