Developing the Whole Child

Wee Care Preschool Has Been Perfecting Early Childhood Education for 34 Years


After searching for quality early childhood education with reasonable rates and finding very few options, a San Diego mom founded Wee Care Preschool back in 1983. With an overall mission to educate and care for young children in an age-appropriate, high-quality environment, Wee Care has now expanded to a total of three schools, including the newest in 4S Ranch. “Our 4S location was added in July of last year, and we feel it’s truly one of the highest quality preschool facilities in all of San Diego,” said President Darla Suder, a 26-year veteran of the organization. “The building is modern and spacious, and the children have a lot of space to learn and play. The classrooms are large and feature skylights, which allows for a lot of natural light to come into the rooms.” The schools serve children 18 months to 5 years of age (plus infant care in the near future), and parents can try Wee Care for 25% off the already-low rates for the first three months.


With flexible schedules including half or full days, and options to attend between two and five days per week, along with extended hours of operation, Wee Care strives to accommodate every parent’s schedule and childcare needs. Wee Care serves breakfast, lunch, and snacks so parents never have to worry about packing or paying extra for meals. Enrichment classes including sports, dance, and gymnastics. These classes join an already-extensive curriculum designed to foster a ‘whole child’ philosophy, in which children learn to interact and get along with others through playtime, while at the same time learning those important academic skills appropriate to their specific age group.

Open from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., children arrive in the morning to be greeted by their teachers and provided their morning meal. Then, in the classroom, they explore a wide range of learning experiences, including math, science, literature, sensory experience, dramatic play, music, dance, and different languages. Healthy snacks and nutritious lunches are provided throughout the day.

With a continuous goal of ensuring the finest, safest, and most fun experience for your children, look no further than Wee Care Preschool.
