Our school has been designated a California State University, Northridge Partnership for Excellence program in since 2012.
Our goal is to share the love of Jesus Christ with families by providing a program where children are encouraged in their social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual development. We offer a variety of exciting programs in developmentally appropriate age groups and maintain a 8 to 1 teacher to student ratio for our classrooms.
The great news is our school has open enrollment, meaning that we enroll students throughout the year. Of course your child needs to be ready for preschool. They should be at least 2 years and 6 months old, potty-trained, and ready to separate from mom and dad. Once you have determined that your child is ready, then the process is as simple as giving us a call to set up a time to meet and get a tour of our school.
After you have had opportunity to visit our school, see it “in action” and talk with the staff we will begin the process by giving you our Registration Packet. Once you have filled out the required information , you can return it to GPC Preschool with the necessary payments.

Frequently Asked Questions
We accept children who are 2 years and 6 months old by the first attendance day and fully potty trained. Â Of course it is important that the child is emotionally ready for preschool.

Yes, our preschool calendar is generally based on the Glendale Unified School District’s school calendar. We are closed on many of the same days that the Glendale schools are closed.
Should I pack a snack and lunch for my child?
You will need to pack a lunch for your child if he or she will be with us past noon. The preschool provides snack in the morning and in the afternoon, so there is no need to pack a snack. We are a nut-free school, so we do ask that you not send any food containing nuts or nut products.
Yes! We want to recognize every child and especially at their birth milestone. The celebration for the day takes place during the regular snack time and we invite parents to send in the snack for that day. Something special, like store bought cupcakes or cookies, milk or juice boxes and special birthday napkins goes a long way in recognizing a child on their birthday.
Parents are welcome in the classroom anytime. We encourage parents to be involved in the school day, though it is not required. We do ask that visits be prearranged with the teachers.
