A parent cooperative pre-school.

Established in 1966, Sandy Hill is a parent cooperative North County San Diego Preschool which unites family participation and teacher expertise in a natural setting. Our play-based philosophy supports children as they explore and learn while building self-esteem. We endeavor to provide all our children with a responsive, nurturing, and stimulating environment in which they can reach their full potential as happy, competent, and productive human beings.


The 2015-2016 school year begins on September 4th and will go through June 16th, 2015. We offer a Parent Tot program on Mondays and Wednesdays, a two day Tuesday/Thursday program and a three day Monday/Wednesday/Friday program.

We are currently enrolling for the 2015/2016 school year.
