    Community Education Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten programs promote the physical, mental, social, emotional, and creative development of each child through a literacy-rich, play-based learning environment using a partnership with staff, parents/guardians, and community. 

    Young people are our most valuable resource for the future and we encourage active learning with opportunities for self-esteem, enhancement, discovery and decision-making through classroom instruction aligned with our Arizona Department of Education Early Learning Standards.
