Seashore Academy

Seashore’s outdoor academic early childhood program combines early childhood education with a focus on outdoor learning experiences. We provide a unique approach to early childhood education by utilizing our outdoor environments as the primary learning space.

The main philosophy behind our outdoor academic  early childhood program is to foster children’s development and learning through nature-based experiences. Seashore children are engaged in hands-on exploration, discovery, and play in natural settings. Our ECE program is offered at both our Newport Beach Campus as well as our Mission Viejo Campus.

Seashore also offers “Drop-In” Fridays where your child can experience a fun-filled day of learning and adventure without the commitment of a full-time program.

Our goal is that by preschool graduation your child will be ready for success as they take the next step to elementary school. The Boys & Girls Club is here for your child at every age and stage, with two preschools, six afterschool care locations, sports leagues (ages 2-16), and performing and martial arts programs (ages 3+).
