Our Preschool prepares children socially, emotionally and cognitively by using a play-based, emergent curriculum inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. We embrace Process Art and use the Preschool Learning Foundations published by the California Dept. of Ed. in ongoing assessment to ensure that all children are prepared for the transition to elementary school. Class placement is by age as of 9/1 of the current year. Our school year mirrors the TUSD calendar as much as possible.

This class focuses on social/emotional skills, self regulation, empathy, language, gross & fine motor skills. Children must be potty trained and wearing underwear. Accidents are expected, but children should be able to mostly attend to their own needs.
