All children must be at least 2 years, 9 months of age in September (age 3 by the end of the calendar year) to enter preschool in the fall. Our three day morning class is reserved for children who have had at least one full year of preschool experience. Our two day morning class is open to younger children looking for an introductory experience. The three day afternoon class is a combination of ages and experiences and is often a good choice for siblings attending together.
For children who do not quite meet the age requirement, TCP offers a Parent/Toddler program, which is appropriate for children who will be at least 1 year, 9 months of age in September (age 2 by the end of the calendar year) to register for the fall.
TCP historically follows the Tustin Unified School District calendar with a ten-month school year beginning in September and ending in June. There is no summer program offered.

Tustin Community Preschool is, first and foremost, a developmental preschool. Every effort is made to provide children with a rich, stimulating and fun curriculum that helps them to use their amazing brains and celebrate their childhood. Under the guidance of our Director, our Curriculum Committee – often made up of member parents who are highly experienced in early childhood education – works to provide children with developmentally appropriate experiences that enable them to learn through play. Children are encouraged to work with paint, glue, glitter and clay. They are given opportunities to dress-up, role-play, bond with classroom pets, and help to cook and prepare snacks and special celebratory "feasts." Field trips such as visits to the tide pools, post office and pumpkin patch are a few examples of TCP trips that our kids treasure. Special "signature" events and activities – many including the entire family – are offered throughout the year.
At the foundation of TCP's program are our two veteran teachers, Ms Shelley Burnett (3 Day Classes) and Ms Christina Wilmer (2 Day Class & Parent/Toddler). Both Shelley and Christina share a passion for educating young children through nurturing, developmentally appropriate methods. Their enthusiasm and expert direction are a key element in our preschool's success – and the success of your child. Read more about them here.
