We create developmentally appropriate educational environments that empower children to be confident, successful, and lifelong learners, following Arizona's Early Learning Standards.
The Arizona Early Learning Standards have been developed to provide a framework for the planning of quality learning experiences for all children three to five years of age. The standards cover a broad range of skill development and provide a useful instructional foundation for children from diverse backgrounds and with diverse abilities.
Our toddler classrooms reflect on the child’s needs along with a play-based curriculum, meaning learning through play. Children are beginning to explore and develop their physical, social, and emotional needs. Their vocabulary begins to expand during this stage; therefore our staff encourages vocabulary development by repeating words and teaching basic sign language.
Our curriculum is created to give each child the opportunity to enjoy story time, singing, art, science, sensory, circle time, and physical movement. We facilitate the children’s individual and group interest, needs, and growth. Attention is given to developing gross and fine motor skills. A daily report is provided to the parent at the end of the day.
Our preschool classrooms are a child-centered environment. This means we let the children have a say in their day, design developmentally appropriate activities, have and open-ended art projects, and engage in A LOT of sensory experiences. Each day we provide opportunities to create, move, read, discuss, observe, sing and play!
We facilitate each child’s individual and group interests, needs, growth, and learning through observation, assessment, and planning. The curriculum incorporates writing, science, math, art, and reading. A child must be potty-trained to attend preschool.
We are pleased to currently offer the following enrichment opportunities for students:
