Early Education & Expanded Learning/Before & Afterschool

About Us

 Welcome to the Westminster School District’s Early Education & Expanded Learning department. Throughout the pages of this website you will learn about our high quality early education programs, expanded learning programs, parent education, and a variety learning resources, including how to register for one of our exemplary instructional programs.


We currently have  preschools located at different elementary schools through out  the Westminster School District, including Land School, serving children 4 months to 5-years of age. To meet a variety of family needs we also offer a full day program (6 am to 6 pm) at Land School, and a Spanish and Vietnamese Dual Language Immersion Programs, located and Willmore and DeMille Schools, respectively.


We feel children learn best in a balance of child-initiated and teacher-directed learning. Children are given the freedom to make their own choices, initiate and explore their own thoughts, as well as to express them creatively. In addition, teachers integrate Smart Board Technologies and iPad minis into developmentally-appropriate activities to provide pre-academic learning in reading, writing, and mathematics. Outdoors, children have the chance to grow in coordination, balance and strength. Our overall goal is to provide a seamless transition from preschool to kindergarten and establish each child for school success and beyond.



It’s important to note that the primary goal of all of our programs is to prepare children and their families for school success and beyond! Should you have any questions about our programs, please feel free to reach us via our contact page on this website, or by calling (714) 898-8389. You may also email Darcy Spicer at [email protected]
