Kyrene Integrated Preschool Program
The Kyrene Integrated Preschool Program offers an exciting first learning experience for both children who are typically developing, as well as children who are experiencing delays in their development.
Kyrene's developmentally appropriate, peer-based curriculum is aligned with the Arizona Early Learning Standards and emphasizes early literacy, math, and communication. The Integrated preschool classroom provides opportunities for each student to improve motor and self-help skills, learn leadership skills, practice compassion and acceptance of diversity, and encourage creativity and a love of learning.
Our program is designed to serve preschoolers aged three to five (not eligible age for kindergarten/children that turn age 5 by September 1). Each class is taught by a certified early childhood teacher with two teaching assistants and a Speech/Language Pathologist providing services and support. Classes are kept small, generally between 14-16 children, and are comprised of typically developing children and children with disabilities. This low teacher to student ratio, along with a 3-hour, 4-days per week schedule, provides the perfect setting for your child to prepare for the school experience.
By housing our classes at elementary schools throughout the District and following the District school calendar, our students are introduced to grade school culture and routines to further prepare them for success in kindergarten.
