“Our preschool is accredited by the National Accreditation Commission and licensed by the Arizona Department of Health services. A developmental curriculum is followed by the district preschool program. The developmental curriculum is influenced by Creative Curriculum and the Arizona Early Learning Standards. KUSD #20 offers preschool at 2 different sites in the district: Little Explorers Early Learning Center and the Mt.Tipton Preschool (located in Dolan Springs). The Preschool Program offers free services to children ages 3 to 5 years old with developmental delays. A Grant Program is available to provide free preschool services for families in financial need. We also have a tuition program for typically developing children ages 3 to 5 years old. If you think your child may have delays or just want to get a better idea of your child’s current skills, call the preschool office to make an appointment for a free screening. We offer monthly screenings for 3 to 5 year olds.
Little Explorers Early Learning Center also has a child care center on site that cares for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. The child care center is also accredited by the National Accreditation Commission and licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services. It is a teaching lab for high school students taking classes in the area of Early Childhood. All High School students are instructed and supervised by qualified Little Explorers Early Learning Center staff.”
