PRESCHOOL

Monte Vista Children’s Center has been serving the preschool needs of Turlock, California since 1980.

It is our desire that every child knows they are special, cherished, and loved by God. We provide care for fully potty-trained 2-year-olds through kindergarten. Our goal is to have each child ready for an easy kindergarten transition. We meet all state preschool requirements and are fully licensed by the state.

 

Those of us at Monte Vista Children’s Center know that children are a special gift from God. Each one is different and unique. Our hope is that each child comes to know and understand just how special they are.
