Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to The Academy at Manhattan Beach! We are located in the tree section of sunny Manhattan Beach. All of our classrooms operate with two trained  teachers who are background checked, fingerprinted and CPR certified.  In addition to our well secured outdoor space, we offer an extended gross motor time in our Movement Matters Zone which facilitates an active schedule throughout your child's day.
