St. John’s Preschool

50 Years of Service

St. John’s Preschool has been serving the community since 1967.  St. John’s is tucked in the South Bay Area of El Segundo, California, just minutes from the Los Angeles International Airport and the 105 and 405 Freeways.

St. John’s Preschool strives to create a warm, and loving community where the children, through active involvement with the physical environment, learn to be self sufficient, solve problems, interact with peers in positive ways, and generally grow in all areas of development.
