In our preschool program students will: develop early literacy skills such as oral language, listening and speaking, phonemic awareness, vocabulary development, problem-solving, prewriting, comprehension, and critical thinking skills.  

Our core curriculum is aligned with the California Preschool Learning Foundations and California Preschools Learning Frameworks.  Each guide is a research-based document that provides standards and developmentally appropriate practices to increase student success.  Guided by the Foundations and Frameworks, our teachers use various instructional methods and strategies such as those reflected in the Sobrato Early Academic Language (SEAL) suite of strategies to address the diverse needs of all children.

Furthermore, our students are assessed using the Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP) twice each school year.  The results from the DRDP are shared with parents so they can see their child's progress in learning, math, science, literacy, and physical growth.
