My daughter has been at LACP for two years, and I am amazed at how well she’s been doing. The staff at LACP is kind, nurturing, and incredibly loving towards all the students, and the children who attend thrive under their care and instruction. We love being a part of the LACP family!



Preston has been enrolled at LACS since he was 2-years-old and he has loved every minute of it since. My wife and I share the same sentiment. LACS has provided Preston a quality education from which we’ve seen him learn and grow exponentially. The LACS Christian-based values and atmosphere has helped carve out a foundation from which we will continue to build upon.

Los Altos Christian Preschool

Our Private Preschool is unique in that we do not subscribe to just one philosophy for teaching. We believe that each child is created uniquely and their differences should be considered during the learning process. Our school provides a variety of methods and opportunities for our littlest friends to explore, make connections between concepts, develop independence and gain confidence in their abilities. We consider ourselves a well-balanced blend between academic, emergent, developmental and play-based philosophies in order to focus on the growth of the whole child.

With over 100 years of cumulative classroom teaching experience, our teachers are all focused on the learning process as it relates to the student as individuals. LACP has an extremely low turnover rate for our beloved staff and our teachers have been a part of our school family anywhere from three years to over twenty! This speaks to the high caliber of education we offer and the importance of our school’s focus on community. We love the sense of community that our school offers and our smaller class sizes help to foster a great connection between our teachers and parents.

Our average class size is 10 students, however for our 2 and 3 years olds, our teacher ratio is 1:8. Currently we employ teaching assistants when there are more than 8 students in a classroom for our 2 and 3 year olds. This ratio is well below the CA requirements of 1:12 and we feel that the ratio we offer allows our teachers to do accurate assessments of our student’s areas of growth along with being able to note possible concerns for each child.

As a Christian school, we remain focused on Christian values and have worked these core character values into our curriculum. We currently offer a non-denominational chapel program that uses Biblical stories to enhance these ideals. Our students learn about honesty, friendship, thankfulness, joy, and cooperation, all while they are engaged in a fun, hands-on learning process using songs, games, finger-plays and even acting out the stories themselves in costume! They love re-telling the stories and being able to participate in the dramas.

We encourage you to come and visit our preschool and see why we continue to be the hidden gem of preschools in the Los Altos area. To learn more, please explore our website, or call to schedule a tour. We offer scheduled visitor days October-May.

Observations are offered by appointment only so as not to disrupt the learning process.
