A Little About Serra

Serra Preschool is a cooperative (parent participation) preschool.  This allows us to share in a most important aspect of our child’s education – his or her first school experience.

School Hours
Monday, Wednesday, & Friday (4 & 5-year-olds class)  9:00 am – 12:15 pm
Tuesday & Thursday (3-year-olds class)  9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Parent Participation
Enthusiastic parent participation keeps our school running efficiently and allows us to keep our tuition low. Parents are scheduled to work at the school approximately 2-4 mornings a month in their child’s class. Siblings are not allowed while the parent is working.

Parents are scheduled to bring a nutritious snack approximately once every 8 weeks on one of their scheduled workdays. You may want to bring a snack that the children can help prepare.

Monthly General Meetings
Attendance at our monthly general meetings is mandatory. At the general meetings we discuss future activities, fund-raisers, field trips & resolve any questions, which have come up during the month. As parents, this is our opportunity to have a voice in the development & enrichment of our school. Following the business portion of the meeting we invite a speaker to discuss one of a variety of topics that is pertinent to our school.

School Jobs
Each parent volunteers for a job at the school. Jobs include responsibility for arranging field trips, making play dough, and recycling, just to name a few.

Serra Preschool is a non-profit organization. Therefore, in order to keep the school running, parents are required to enthusiastically participate & meet a minimum requirement of earnings for one or two fundraisers each year.

School Schedule & Holidays
The Serra Preschool calendar coincides with the calendar set by the Capistrano Unified School District.
