Welcome to the Los Alamitos Child Development Center!  For over 45 years, our program has been providing early childhood education and programs to preschool age children and their families.  It goes without saying that the community in which Los Alamitos Unified School District serves is quite special.  We feel honored to have the opportunity to provide, for many of our young preschoolers and their families, a first glimpse and experience into our exceptional District.

At the Los Alamitos Child Development Center we pride ourselves in providing a high-quality, child-centered, and developmentally appropriate preschool experience for the youngest children in our District and surrounding communities.  While we are strong in our philosophy of a play-based, emergent curriculum where the curriculum is led by the interests of the child, we are also firm in creating experiences and environments that support a deeper level of interest and developmental growth that will foster a love of learning.  As early childhood professionals, we recognize that the base for school readiness is a solid social/emotional foundation.  Having that strong social/emotional foundation and love of learning equates to a readiness to learn.

Our program would not be the program it is without our team of extraordinary early childhood professionals.  It is our primary goal that your experience with our program is one that makes you and your child feel safe, welcome, and confident that you made the right choice in choosing the Los Alamitos Child Development Center to prepare your child for kindergarten and above.

We are excited to welcome you to our Los Alamitos CDC family and look forward to the wonderful journey ahead!

With Warm Regards,

Jean-Mari Dagarin, Coordinator
