About Us


Teacher with kidsThank you for your interest in Eastgate Christian School at La Jolla Community Church.  We consider it a privilege to be a part of your child’s life as they learn and grow.  We believe that each child in our school has been sent here by God to be cared for in a safe and loving environment.

Please know that we take our job seriously and will do our best to meet the needs of your family.  The staff, the preschool board, the church and I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your child.  Your family is important to us so please let us know if you have any concerns about your child or our program.

At ECS we offer age appropriate activities that are designed to develop the whole child.  The curriculum offers opportunities for learning in language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, fine arts, and Bible.  Eastgate also offers a rich environment for play.

As you participate in and visit our school, please remember that this is a child’s world.  Work is play!  Concept development comes from children experimenting with their environment.  We direct our children in some of their play, so that they will learn important concepts.  We also provide free time for them to explore the world and learn on their own.

Children’s ideas of art, beauty and fun do not always coincide with our adult ideas.  Be open to their imagination and see what you can learn from them.  Welcome back to the world of childhood, magical play and endless curiosity. 

Come and enjoy learning!
