Program Curriculum
The preschool curriculum uses the State of Arizona Early Learning Standards. 
Using the standards, teachers with bachelors degrees and high-qualified paraprofessionals lead students in play-based, dual-language activities that develop verbal skills, motor skills, pre-literacy skills, beginning math concepts, social skills, problem solving, and self-confidence.  By the end of the year, students will have a foundation in English and Spanish and will be ready to enter Kindergarten. 

If you desire for your child to continue in a  Dual-Language program after preschool, Creighton School District is home to Biltmore Preparatory Academy. BPA has an internationally recognized Dual-Language program with a model of 50% of instruction provided in the partner language (e.g. Spanish) and 50% in English at all elementary grade levels to all students in the program kindergarten through 8th grade. 

All of our preschool programs are licensed through the Arizona Department of Health Services.
