Pre-K and Kindergarten
Pre-K and Kindergarten
Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten at WSOC honors the “kingdom of childhood.” The rooms are simply decorated and softly lit, the toys soothing to the touch, the atmosphere is reverent and purposeful. We learn by doing, we discover through play, and we enjoy a wealth of pre-academic activities from finger knitting and cooking to gardening and outdoor crafts. Each day follows a rhythm of in-breaths (circle time, inside play) and out-breaths (outdoor fun, snack time). Our daily rhythms build confidence and boost skills that will serve the child as they enter the grades.
The best way to learn more about our Early Childhood classes and all they offer is to visit. We offer monthly tours and events which are designed to be an important introduction to our school.
If you have already visited our school and you are ready to submit an enrollment application for your child, let’s begin!
This page contains step-by-step instructions to describe the process. However, if you’d like some additional support, please contact Kathy Christian in the admissions office or call (949) 574-7775 x206.
Choosing the right school for your child is a heartfelt decision. Our commitment to you is to support you every step of the way, and to share our admissions decision as soon as possible after you have completed our admissions application process.
The application process for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten begins with a mandatory Early Childhood Orientation Evening – please go to our Events Calendar to see specific dates for these events.
Applications may be completed at any time throughout the year, but those received prior to the application deadline will receive priority. If there are spaces remaining following this first round of applicants, additional applicants will be considered.
Participation in our Playgroup program is beneficial, but is not a requirement for consideration to Pre-Kindergarten.

Once your application is “complete” with all of the above, we will schedule a Shadow Day and Parent & Student Interview.
Applications are considered “complete” and will be processed when all of the above has been received.
Decision letters will be mailed after interview and shadow day has been completed.
After a student has been accepted, an end-of-year transcript from the student’s current school should be provided to:
