    Title I Preschool

     Our goal is to prepare children to enter kindergarten with a healthy self-concept and a positive attitude toward school and learning. This is accomplished by offering age appropriate curriculum designed to develop social, emotional, physical and cognitive abilities in our students. Through exploration, our preschool students interact with materials, people, ideas and events. Our preschool teachers encourage active learning by providing resources, planning experiences and creating an inviting environment in which all children can learn.

    Our preschool curriculum is aligned to the Arizona Early Learning Standards, which were developed for all children 3-5 years of age. These standards serve as a guide in providing a quality program that is developmentally appropriate for each child.

    At Shumway we offer a five day program for preschool aged children. The class is scheduled from 7:45 am - 10:45 am, Monday through Friday. Our preschool programs follow the district calendar.

    The Title I preschool programs are funded through Federal and State funds, and are free to all qualifying Chandler residents. The curriculum is developmental and hands-on with a strong emphasis on language and learning. It is designed to build a healthy self-concept and positive attitude toward school and learning. Your child will learn concepts through play, games, songs, movement and other multi-sensory activities.
