Preschool / Childcare Programs:

Toddler program & Preschool program

- Our childcare education programs are well structured in order to provide your child with a solid foundation for learning.
- We develop your children's social skills. Your child will learn the important skill of socialization among his or her peers
- Our childcare programs are offered in a stimulating, engaging and creative atmosphere.

Our childcare programs are designed to give your child a solid academic foundation. In a stimulating environment, the small class size will encourage your child to learn and interact. Each class is tailored for your child’s specific age. We maintain a six to one ratio (children / teacher) in our toddler classes (18 months upwards), and a 12 to one ratio in all preschool classrooms. This enables each child to get the personal and individual attention they need to succeed.

Enrollment Age:

First School La Quinta starts enrollment of children as young as 18 months and teaches and cares for children through their pre-kindergarten years.

Quality Teachers:
With very few exceptions most of our teachers come from right here in the Coachella Valley. College of the Desert has an excellent Early Childhood Development program that routinely produces educated teachers. Although First School rarely hires unseasoned teachers (newly graduated) it is good that our community has a ready supply of Early Childhood specialists entering the labor market.

When we conduct a "Teacher Search" we interview extensively and do background checks. We conduct a Justice Department and F.B.I. clearance prior to hiring.

Parent Testimonial:

"I would like to take a moment to acknowledge how wonderful the staff are at your La Quinta location. When our son started in April, I was impressed with the facility. However, I knew that aside from your beautiful building and play area, it would be more important that the teachers were loving and patient. I realized by his second day at school that we made a good decision.

As a parent, it is the little things that mean so much, like Jessica always greeting us with a smile in the mornings and the teachers making eye contact and welcoming our son, and in the evenings when we pick him up the teachers are still smiling!

You have a well balanced, well run facility. Our son is in a friendly, clean, and caring environment. Yet the many rules and regulations are still followed. I am always comforted when I over hear Yolanda request a picture id from someone she is not familiar with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the care that my son is given."
- Amy, La Quinta.

Based in Sherman Oaks, we serve families in Encino, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Beverly Glen and surrounding communities. More than preparation for high school, students are moved thoughtfully and sensitively from Lower School and prepared for the more departmentalized Upper School program.

The school climate permits them to develop their abilities and a love of learning while they are challenged academically. Dr. Buckley’s approach addresses the development of the whole student, enabling them to become well-rounded, knowledgeable, and independent. At Buckley, we look for students who are well suited to our philosophy. For us, success means feeling safe to take a risk, ask a question, try out for a play or run for office. It means students who take the opportunity to learn and grow in all areas of school life, inside and outside of the classroom.
