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.
These Preschool classrooms are located on nine of our AVUSD campuses and one county campus which are:
Desert Knolls Elementary
Rancho Verde Elementary
Sitting Bull Academy
Sycamore Rocks Elementary
Yucca Loma Elementary
Apple Valley County Early Education Center
If you are interested in enrolling your child please call:

Once your child is on our list, the AVUSD Preschool Office staff will call the most eligible families for an appointment. Space is limited; eligible four year olds are placed first. We continue to enroll throughout the school year as spaces become available at all school sites.
