Preschool Open House
Since 1994, we have hosted a Preschool Open House which gives you an opportunity to visit participating preschools and child care facilities from Montara to Half Moon Bay. It is an opportunity to view the facilities, meet the directors and teachers, review curriculum, pick up enrollment forms and inquire about waiting lists. This is offered in the Spring of each year.
In conjunction with the Preschool Open House, the CMC publishes a Preschool Directory which lists approximately 20 daycares and preschools on the coast from Montara to Half Moon Bay. For each facility, the directory includes such information as name, address, enrollment requirements, adult-to-child ratios, ages served, hours of operation, and school philosophy. To download a copy of the current directory,see the Resources section below.
Since 2001, the CMC has presented a gathering where parents who have children in elementary schools share their personal decisions and experiences about their chosen schools. Some of the topics discussed have included school size (ranging from 48 to over 500 students), enrichment programs (such as music, art and drama), parental involvement, fundraising and curriculum objectives (like math, science and reading). This event occurs each year in February.
As a more formal companion to the Social, this event features PTO members and Administrators from local schools. The Forum includes both private and public schools on the Coast and is commonly held in November.
