Field Trips

Oh, the Places You'll Go...

                                                - Dr. Seuss

Field trips are a vital part of our school. We try to go on a field trip every month (& sometimes twice in a month). Through field trips we are able to explore the world around us, and further the learning of our theme units by bringing that learning “to life” in a different and “hands-on” way. We rely on Parents to help us drive for trips. Although it is not required of parents, we encourage them to come whenever they are able too. When a parent volunteers to drive we do do a background check so that we can ensure the safety of every child. Below is a list of some of the possible field trips we would go on in a year:

  • Petco
  • Beach/Tide pools
  • Oma’s Pumpkin Patch
  • Pump it Up
  • The Park
  • Albertsons
  • Botanical Gardens
  • San Diego Zoo
  • Legoland
  • San Diego Zoo Safari Park
  • Sea Life Aquarium
  • Musicals
  • Michael’s Craft store
  • Sea World
  • Birch Aquarium and Cove

Children are required to wear the bright green field trip shirt. This shirt will be provided to you once enrolled. Typically, items to bring on field trips include car seat or booster seat, sack lunch, water, and sunscreen. Please check with your child's teacher for other relevant items.

There is an additional fee for most field trips, normally between $5 and $10.

Parents: If you are interested in being a field-trip driver for your child's class, ensure an updated copy of your car insurance and license are on file in the school office.

Each classroom provides a field trip schedule for the year. Please speak to your child's teacher about the coming field trips.
