About Us

Pacific Oaks Preschool was founded in March 2005 when owner, Paula Clemmer, while teaching a parent participation class, discovered that parents were seeking a true, play based creative curriculum preschool. Several elements came together to create the setting for Pacific Oaks Preschool. Being amongst the 100 year old oak trees and incorporated in many historical train cars are what contribute to a creative and natural environment. We are licensed by the state of California and offer half-day programs for children two years through five years of age. Pacific Oaks Preschool also offers a low child to teacher ratio.

Our goals for each child:

  • To encourage a positive self-concept and healthy relationships with others

  • To treat classmates with respect

  • To expose each child to the world in which he or she lives

  • To nurture creativity and curiosity through an array of experiences

  • To foster decision making abilities

  • To develop self help skills

  • To stimulate both fine and gross motor skills

  • To strengthen the relationship between family and child


"Only where children gather is there any real chance of fun."
