Welcome to Fleur de Lis School. We are a traditional nursery school providing a developmental approach for social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth. We offer your child the opportunity to feel secure, safe and happy in a loving home-like environment.

We enjoy the beautiful days of summer.  Children have been having a great time playing outdoors: water tables, mud and sprinklers are part of the curriculum! Your children will visit their new classes and new teachers in July & August.  We send them in small groups of friends to share this new experience.  This is also the time for placing staff into the classrooms they will be teaching in the new school year.  You may see familiar faces in new places! Our new classes begin on Tuesday, September 2nd.


We will be closed on Monday, September 1st for Labor Day.


All of our children are artists and their beautiful masterpieces will be featured in Mission Hills Library starting August 21st through September 21st.  We hope you take the time to go to our community library and see your child’s work.

We now have a phone system installed in each of our classrooms.  This is an important safety measure to ensure each classroom can communicate with the main office.  Please do not call or text teachers on their personal numbers.  Teachers only check their phones during break time. All calls should be made to the office (619) 295-6781 and we will direct your call or take a message. We also have after hours answering machine.


The Two Year Old Classes are having fun “water days.” We have water tables for experimentation and mud holes for sensory exploration. Please make sure your child has extra clothes, including shoes and socks, in his/her cubby.  In celebration of 4th of July, the classes will create patriotic windsocks and firework art. As they learn about the “Ocean”, the children will be painting with coral and making anemone prints! For “Camp” week, the classes will be playing in an outside tent and making S’mores.  End of Summer Parties will be on August 28th & 29th.



As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve had lots of butterflies visit Fleur De Lis the past few weeks.  Our Three Year Old Classes have been studying the lifecycle of a butterfly by watching them lay eggs on our milkweed plants, seeing the eggs turn into caterpillars, caterpillars spinning their chrysalises, and beautiful butterflies emerging. This has been a wonderful hands on, long-term project for our children and they’ve learned so much along the way! Ms. Lizette & Ms. Adriana’s Class will be starting water days on June 30th and are excited to learn about 4th of July, Beach & Water Safety, Space, and the Zoo.  Their End of Summer Beach Party will be on Thursday, August 28th.  Ms. April & Ms. Julie’s Class will be celebrating “America” by having a fun BBQ picnic.  

They will also learn about Pirates, Fairy Tales, and Space. From July 28th to August 8th, the class will be having “Wet Days”, so please bring a change of clothes. Their End of Summer Luau will be on Friday, August 22nd.   




The Pre-Kindergarten Summer Program is going great!  Every Monday is Library Day and every Thursday is Park Day.  The children had a great first library trip to watch Hullaballoo perform.  The Clubhouse is now open and the children enjoy playing Legos, trains, and board & card games.  On Friday, July 11th, the group travels to Coronado by Ferry.  Then they journey over to Coronado Tidelands Park for a picnic and fun play time.  On Thursday, August 7th the parents are invited to play and picnic with the group on their last trip to 6th Avenue playground in Balboa Park.  During the last week of our summer program, August 25-29, we will have an Inflatable Jumper on Thursday and an “End of Summer” Pizza party lunch on Friday, August 29th.



In the months of Julio (July) and Agosto (August), Ms. Nina will be Revisando Temas Anteriores (reviewing previous themes).  The children will do a fun mixture of Musica (music), Movimiento (movement), Juegos (games), Libros (books) and Flanela (Flannel).
