A Loving Place to Learn and Grow

What's New

We have welcomed many new families and are enrolling the children of previous preschoolers!

Many sunny days have given the children the opportunity for fun in our large backyard, with new equipment purchased with the proceeds from our annual pizza night raffle and cookie dough sale.

Family Participation

We welcome family members at our school to share in the joy of preschool! There are family events such as our Ice Cream Social, Thanksgiving Feast, Open House and opprtunities to assist in community service events. Our classroom schedules are flexible and we welcome guests who would like to share a skill or interest that will enrich the preschool experience.  We are so thankful to those family members who can help with a small repair project, new learning center experience and those who just want to come spend some time in class or on the playground with their child or grandchild! Placerville Preschoolers was started in 1959 by a group of families who desired to collaborate with other community members to provide a safe, nurturing, exciting, early education experience for their children. We continue to hold those values and strive to include our enrolled families, former families and now our graduates who bring their enthusiasm, expertise and committment to our school. Community support is what makes our school recognized as a high quality opportunity for the children of El Dorado County!
