Our Curriculum

Preschool
Little Leaders in our preschool program learn their numbers and letters, and begin to apply them to basic math, reading, and writing concepts. The preschool curriculum also focuses on helping young children strengthen their social, sensory and motor skills.
 
Pre-K

In our kindergarten programs, we model American Leadership Academy's K-12 Core Knowledge Sequence and align our lessons to Arizona Early Learning Standards/.
