International School of Orange County

best preschools in orange county oc

The International School of Orange County is a full immersion bilingual French-English program committed to academic excellence in a nurturing and intimate environment that encourages personal initiative, creativity, and curiosity. Our Preschool through Kindergarten curriculum adapts the French Ministry of Education’s official program to the bicultural and bilingual context. The overall goal is to allow children to grow in a happy environment where they will acquire a healthy desire for knowledge. The principal anchors of our program are:

Developing communication skills through language (speech and comprehension) and through behavior in a social context
Developing body and mind through physical education and artistic activities (dancing, singing, drawing, etc.)
Enhancing interest and natural curiosity through field trips, hands-on projects, and group work.

The French early learning system uses a three-center approach for learning: Direct Instruction, Guided Instruction, and Autonomous Learning. 

Hilltop Preschool

Hilltop is a non-profit, parent participation preschool where both parents and children learn and play together. Under the guidance of qualified early childhood educators, your child’s inherent desire to learn will be nurtured. Our play-based, Reggio-inspired curriculum addresses children’s social and emotional development as well as their growth. Hilltop kids learn to live fully, joyfully and ultimately become self-motivated problem solvers with an abiding curiosity about the world.
