Comprehensive Preschool Curriculum
We have designed a comprehensive preschool curriculum at Skyline Preschools’ Chandler, AZ, campus that teaches children essential skills to be successful in the world around them. Our quality preschool program focuses on the Arizona Early Learning Standards to help preschoolers acquire the necessary knowledge and concepts for this developmental age group.
Our teachers are trained professionals in the field of Early Childhood Education and provide a nurturing, structured environment where children feel safe, cared for, and free to use their growing imaginations.
Each day, our qualified teaching staff creates engaging daily Lesson Plans to ensure your child is learning essential concepts and skills appropriate for his or her age group. These daily Lesson Plans are posted outside of the classroom door for parents to see what activities will occur and what topics their child is learning that day.
In addition to traditional print materials such as storybooks, paper, and worksheets to practice numbers, letters, writing, colors, and artwork, our preschool also offers an exciting computer learning curriculum for students. We utilize a state-of-the-art, digital program called InvestiGator Club. The InvestiGator Club is the original investigation-based early childhood curriculum. The comprehensive prekindergarten learning system builds upon children’s natural curiosity about the world and their place in it. “Purposeful Inquiry,” the heart of The InvestiGator Club, awakens the scientist and explorer in every child. Children learn to use their senses, ask questions, and find answers in a supportive, print-rich environment.
As mentioned above, our comprehensive preschool curriculum includes the Arizona Early Learning Standards, which is an essential guide for young learners with emerging curiosity and discovery of the world around them. The Arizona Standards focus on eight main areas including: The Social/Emotional Self, Language and Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, Physical Development/Health/Safety, and Fine Arts. The following list shows these fundamental aspects in more detail.
