La Cristianita offers a varied program, consisting of both preschool and extended daycare.  All children attend preschool classes, whether they are designated preschool or daycare. The only difference is the “preschool only” students attend from 9:00 a.m. until noon.

Preschool Hours

Our preschool hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon for children ages 2 1/2 -5 years.

Extended Day Care Hours

Our extended day care hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Toddler Program

Our toddler program is available for a full day session only.

Program Dates

The program runs from August through June following the same start and end dates as Capistrano Unified School District. A special summer program is offered during the months of July and August.

Drop-In Care

Drop-In care is offered to preschool children who need occasional care before 9:00 a.m. and/or after 12:00 p.m. The fee for drop in care is $8.00/hr. with a 6 hour per week maximum.

Our Staff

Each member of our staff is a dedicated and compassionate professional who meets and exceeds the State of California guidelines for a qualified preschool teacher. We are dedicated to providing loving and understanding care for each child.

Summer Program

Our summer program is a lot of fun!  Through out the summer months we provide the children with a day camp type atmosphere.  We will have water days when we wear bathing suits and set up pools, sprinklers and water slides on the playground.  We will be doing a lot of fun cooking activities, creative art, and movie days.  We will have specific themes each week and have visits from some very special guests that involve the themes. Check out our complete Summer 2021 Calendar for Summer 2021!

Summer is registered in two sessions, Session 1, Session 2 or opt for both sessions.  The activity fee (one-time/per child fee) paid at the time of registration will be used to cover the cost of extra special guest visitors as well as needed supplies for the summer program.
