About Us

As the first preschool center built in Mira Mesa, family owned and operated Magic Hours Childrens’ Center has been serving the generational needs of our community since 1972.

Our mission is to provide a quality day, every day, for every child in our care. We begin with providing a safe and loving atmosphere that is centered on age appropriate academic curriculum, enveloping diversity of culture and subject matter to best prepare children for future success in education.

Located in the heart of Mira Mesa, Magic Hours Childrens' Center is a preschool that offers highly trained, dedicated teachers and staff who provide childcare and educational curriculum. By encouraging children's natural curiosity and wonder within a supportive, rich environment, our school becomes the perfect place for children to play, laugh and discover.

Magic Hours Childrens' Center follows the premise that a high quality child achievement center considers the total development of each child. With an academically based program, we are defined as a Preschool and not just a Day-Care center. Our professional educators have created curriculum to serve the learning needs of your child during the formative years.
