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.


We offer a Parent Tot program on Mondays and Tuesdays, a two day Tuesday/Thursday program and a three day Monday/Wednesday/Friday program.  We also offer an additional Outdoor program on Tuesdays and Thursdays for our MWF students.

We are currently enrolling for the 2016/2017 school year.
