Welcome to the Santa Margarita Children's Center Website!

Santa Margarita Children’s Center first opened its doors in November of 1993.   The dream of the center was to provide affordable, accessible, high-quality preschool experiences to children that would foster a child’s complete development.  The center is nestled in the Terra Linda Hills and  located on a beautiful campus surrounded by trees.   A loving and caring team of dedicated teachers who cherish the same dream provide guidance for the program.

Over the 21 years we have grown.  Our dream still runs strong. It is evident in the team of staff currently employed at Santa Margarita Children’s Center.  Our Center embraces the Code of Ethics of the National Association for the Education of Young Children as our own and continues to provide outstanding preschool experiences to all children.  We regard ourselves as a childcare center of exceptional education and care for children. 

Our mission is...

Santa Margarita Children’s Center is a culturally inclusive center that utilizes the community to provide a safe and enriching experience for families. In our park like campus, children are encouraged to discover their abilities and talents while learning to respect each other and their surroundings through a developmentally appropriate curriculum.
