St. Ambrose Sea Breeze School seeks to promote social, emotional, academic, physical, and spiritual development of young children through a varied and stimulating program in a secure nurturing environment.
Sea Breeze School provides cognitive learning experiences that include reading and math readiness, language arts, and awareness of the world around us. The teachers encourage creativity and self expression through the use of dramatic play centers, music and movement and art activities. Supervised play, indoor and outdoor, is offered to develop large and small muscles and hand-eye coordination. Spiritual development is promoted through weekly participation in Chapel Services. Chapel Services are 15-20 minutes in length and are planned and conducted by the Chaplain. At Sea Breeze we celebrate and come to know God’s presence in our lives through prayer, story and song. All children and faculty are encouraged to attend their own place of worship. Students are accepted without regard to race, sex, color, national or ethnic origin.
Sea Breeze School occupies four large, well-designed classrooms. Our outdoor areas include a big secured courtyard facing our main classrooms, a playground with climbing equipment, and a beautiful grassy area for running. The yard is shaded with ultraviolet ray-blocking umbrellas. Sea Breeze is licensed by the State of California, Community Care Licensing Bureau and maintains high standards of quality childcare.
