Early Childhood Education

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District Early Childhood Education Department provides preschool programs at twelve elementary school sites. Our preschool programs offer high-quality learning experiences in a positive and caring environment in which diversity is respected. Meaningful parent involvement is actively fostered, as parents play an integral role in their child's educational experience.
