How Do I Register for Preschool/Pre-K?

  • We believe that children learn through experience and discovery. 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.

    Our 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. Our programs also follow the CUSD student calendar.
