Our classrooms are set up to facilitate teacher-guided activities and areas to let students have open exploration. The curriculum is based on Arizona Early Childhood State Standards and Learning Dynamics is our reading curriculum. We strongly encourage parents to visit the preschool where their child is enrolled. Please always remember that when you walk to our preschool classrooms and find children playing, you will know they are doing their best to learn through play. For example, puzzles teach children about logic, placement, and how to match colors and shapes. Art teaches children about imagination and how to use it.

Our mission is to provide a variety of activities, in each of our learning centers, that meet the needs of individual learning styles and offers opportunities for children to make self-directed choices. Our goals are based on common principles of self-motivation, self-pacing, self-selection, and self-correction.
