The Silverado Children’s Center uses an Emergent Curriculum approach. Emergent Curriculum is a form of curriculum design that is based on the interests of the students and the teacher. The students' interests are what leads lesson design. When a teacher perceives a “spark” of interest from a student or students, the teacher brainstorms with the student or students to expand on the interest and develop curricula around it.
Our dedicated and caring teaching staff meet all licensing requirements. They are chosen for their love of students, animals, and our natural environment. Set up a tour and meet our wonderful team!
We are open daily from 7:15 AM - 6:00 PM.
We are located between Silverado and Modjeska Canyons, behind the old Silverado School (the site of the new Library of the Canyons). Below are approximate drive times from other points in Orange County. We may be a little bit further from your home than other preschools but we offer something that no other preschool in Orange County does: a outdoor education nature preschool program at an affordable price.

What Makes Us Different:
The Silverado Children’s Center prepares children to be creative, adventurous, work collaboratively with others, and to connect with the natural environment. We ensure that our students develop skills in the areas of independence, team-working, problem solving, and school-readiness. We strive to lead other area preschools in the areas of connecting children to their natural environment, learning by doing, and teaching both independence and collaborative work.
The Silverado Children Center is dedicated to providing environmentally centered child-care, focused on each child's individual needs and learning/developmental style. We are dedicated to hands-on learning by working in an outdoor environment with plants and animals, while integrating teamwork and adventure. Our educational environment allows children to learn by doing, develop a connection to nature, and work collaboratively with others. We inspire students to explore, want to learn, care for living things, and be a part of a team.
