About Our Preschool

AVUSD currently provides a three hour Preschool opportunity that has developmentally appropriate activities and instruction that are purposeful, engaging and playful which are offered to income eligible children aged three and four. Our teaching and support staff are highly qualified. Our classrooms offer a nurturing environment to foster self-confidence, problem solving and independence, in the hopes of preparing each child for a positive attitude towards his/her learning years ahead. The child to staff ratio is 8:1.
