The place where learning is fun!

General Info
At Murphy Canyon Preschool we are committed to provide the highest quality child care available and possible which enhances social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth and development of children. We strongly believe that children learn better and faster if placed in a happy and positive environment and our number one goal is to create such environment. To us the process of learning is just as important as the results. Children need opportunities to play, learn and have fun. We have designed a program through which children use their own ideas to grow naturally. At Murphy Canyon Preschool the children will also have an opportunity to learn a second language at no extra cost of the parents. Children are able to learn a second language easily because they are still in early language development stage. Each day at Murphy Canyon Preshool we have designated time for certain age groups to work with a teacher for a minimum of 20 minutes. Some services offered: Math Motor Skills Multicultural Music & Dance Physical Education Planned Play Reading Social Skills Development

Love this School

My son just graduated from this school and had been going there for 3 years. The teachers are great and my son loved all of them. My son had some separation anxiety in the mornings and the teachers handle it wonderfully and when I left I knew that he was going to be fine and have a great day, which he always did. Now that my son is in kindergarten I see how lucky I was to have found such a great preschool that totally prepared him for kindergarten.

Love This Place

My child has been going to Murphy Canyon Preschool for about 2 years now. Everytime I drop her off she goes in with a big smile on her face and when I pick her up that smile is still there. Hugs are always waiting not only for my child but for me as well. It is a very confortable environment to walk into and I feel great leaving and knowing my child will be happy all day even though I can not be with her. I love this place.

Murphy Canyon is a great place to take your preschooler

Our daughter has been attending Murphy Canyon Preschool for the past 3 years, and has really enjoyed her experience there. She was in diapers when we first started there. As a ""graduate"", she now knows her ABC's, can count to 100, spell her name, recognizes words and is learning to read, and is understanding simple math. They have prepared her well for the challenges of Kindergarten!

Caring Fun Environment

This preschool, tucked away in a safe, bright corner, has been a wonderful experience for our family. We found Murphy Canyon Preschool through a neighborhood mailing and are thrilled to have had our son enrolled for the past 9 months. We plan to have him attend another year, through pre-K. The caring staff knows each child well, and provides a great combination of fun, education and nurturing. It's comforting to know with whom he spends each day, and that he's both learning academic skills for elementary school and having a lot of good play/creative time as well.

After unpleasant experiences having our daughter in some of the ""posher"" SD area preschools, some even touting themselves as Montessori-based but turning out to be a nightmare, we are so happy to have found Murphy Canyon Preschool for our son.

""Care"" is the right word...

I started my two sons at Murphy Canyon Preschool more than two years ago when I went back to work. I spent the first few days shadowing my child to make the transition easier, and to make sure I was comfortable leaving my kids in their care. I have Weds off, so volunteer frequently and can tell you that the staff really care about each student there, and do their best to make it the most positive environment possible. They may not have the resources that $200-250/week programs do, but they do the most they can with the resources they have. My older son is now almost done with his Kindergarten year at Birney Academy of International Studies (an IB magnet), and I believe that his current reading level of 10 (the state standard requires a level 3 by the time they leave K) has a lot to do with the foundation he received at MCP.
