PEP is a private, non-profit school sponsored by the Community Presbyterian Church, which welcomes all children without reference to race, religion, color, national origin, or ancestry. Our curriculum is based on Christian principles. All children receive equal treatment and access to the school’s services. PEP is licensed by the Department of Social Services of the State of California and must comply with its standards. The administrative office and classrooms are in the Main Building of the Community Presbyterian Church located at 425 Hemlock St. in Vacaville, California.


PEP School was founded in 1969 to offer a preschool experience to children of church members. The school began with one teacher and 8-10 children meeting in small room of the church. Over the past 52 years our school expanded to our present facility. Approximately 64 children are enrolled each year in PEP School.

The main focus of our present dedicated staff is to provide a nurturing environment to each child who enters our doors.


The goals of the Presbyterian Enrichment Preschool are to help children in the process of discovering their full potential to feel confidence in themselves as developing individuals, and to provide experiences leading to an awareness of the talents given to them by God by exploring the world around them. Each child is an active participant in his or her own growth and development. Learning takes place naturally, emerging slowly, as each new experience enriches and broadens your child's view of the world around us. We believe play is an essential component to the growth of the child so, not only do we provide many opportunities for your child to experience success, build confidence, and develop a strong sense of self-worth, we also provide ample time for children to play. Each child needs time to play because it is through play he or she will learn to ask questions and discover answers. Self-initiated play helps each child make sense of his or her world, it provides emotional relief and understanding, and fosters social development. Most importantly, play is just plain fun!


The director and teachers are all experienced and qualified in Early Childhood Education and prepared to provide a responsive learning environment to meet the daily needs and varied interests of each child. PEP also, at times, has student teachers working in the classroom from local colleges. We are continually updating our curriculum by attending workshops and conferences for preschool teachers and administrators.

Summer school is less structured and geared to more science and outdoor activities. Please consider summer school for new enrollees.
