Nature-based Preschool

Fostering Healthy
Child Development

Children use their whole bodies to explore, experiment,
and solve problems. At SMCC, we use nature,
in conjunction with multi-sensory active learning, to
support whole-child development.

SMCC Library

Santa Margarita Children’s Center Family Lending Library

  • Santa Margarita Children’s Center is dedicated to promoting literacy and the joy of reading as it is the single best known indicator of success in school . A child’s first introduction to books comes very early and primarily from parents.
  • Our family lending library is one way Santa Margarita supports and provides opportunities to encourage parents to continue to read to their children and foster a lifelong love of reading.
  • Our library mural was painted by artist, Nathalie Hellequin, and Linda Grey, Parent Volunteer, organized and recreated this library space. We are proud to have a beautiful, well maintained lending library, cared for by parent volunteers.
  • It includes over a thousand books: fiction and non-fiction, board books, picture books without words, alphabet and basic concept books, poetry books, classics, parenting books, teacher’s curriculum books and resource books for study projects.
  • Parents and child check out the books and bring them back when they have read them.
