Due to its innovative curriculum and all encompassing style to early education, this preschool/kindergarten has gained the attention of many parents as well as the education community and holistic community of Temecula and its surrounding areas.

The school opened its doors in February 2013, serving ages 18 months to 6 years of age. The community style school, which consists of 3 classrooms, a music room, and a beautiful natural playground, is nurturing all aspects of the young child’s development.

Wild Roots Preschool offers a unique program, which is inspired by and encompasses the rich learning experiences of the three greatest European styles of education– The Montessori Method, Reggio Emilia Approach, and Waldorf Education.

The children at Wild Roots Preschool have daily exposure to all activities which are impressionable to a child at the age of what Maria Montessori called the absorbent mind.

In each of the classrooms, the children are given Montessori lessons, which focus on the development of each child on an individual level, while guiding the children through Language, Mathematics, Sensorial, and Practical Life activities. Through this Montessori work, children’s minds become refined, their manners become gracious, and their independence grows.

The children also have daily exposure to creative art, science, and play-based small group learning, inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach through various projects and spontaneous activities. These activities are based on the children’s interests, the season, the weather, the mood/affect of the children, or a long term project idea.

For imaginative play, the classrooms offer a Waldorf inspired play area where children are offered natural wooden toys and structures to inspire their natural imagination. In this area, the children choose to play peacefully with or without friends.

Wild Roots Preschool and Child Care Center believes that all children should have exposure to music in any form possible. The music program currently offers group music classes for two age groups, private piano lessons, and voice ensemble classes. Performances are scattered throughout the the year.

The staff at Wild Roots Preschool is growing in order to accommodate increasing enrollment. The teachers, assistants, and director alike are extremely passionate and dedicated professionals who have the like-minded admiration for holistic early education. They strive for excellence and personal growth through stimulating reading, sharing of ideas, attending workshops, furthering education, and observation of various programs.
