About Ocean Beach
We offer an inclusive preschool program at the Ocean Beach Early Care and Education Center by braiding funding to serve preschoolers in the same classrooms and in four part-day preschool sessions that operate Monday through Friday with Wednesdays as a non-class day so that teachers can plan. Please review the following options to see which one best meets your child and family’s needs:
- Community Program: A sliding fee scale is used to determine preschool cost. The Community Program is for children ages 3-5 years old.
- Early Childhood Education and Assistance (ECEAP): A comprehensive preschool program that provides free services and support to eligible children ages 3-5 years old and their families.
- Early Childhood Special Education: Evaluation and services to children ages 3-5 with developmental delays.
Our combined preschool classrooms promote active, play-based learning for diverse groups of children. Children are accepted into ECEAP based on their age, family income, and other developmental or environmental risk factors. Read more about the ECEAP program.

Quality and Accessibility
The early years are the most extraordinary period of growth and development in a child’s lifetime. Our ECE centers develop and nurture the relationship between early learning and K-12 so that all schools are ready for children and all children are ready for school. Our programs are strengthened through well-trained and dedicated professionals who provide individualized care based on each child’s needs.
