Our Curriculum

We help our preschools gain and nurture their motor skills, social skills, and sensory skills though a variety of activities. The structured lessons we have also teach students how to apply and read numbers and letters.
Our pre-K Little Leaders curriculum is designed to teach students a wide variety of academic and social skills.  Aligned with Arizona Early Learning Standards, we address each part of a child's development. We utilize  American Leadership Academy's K-12 Core Knowledge Sequence to guide our early literacy and mathematical lessons. Some of the developmental skills we help students build: 

  • Social skills 
  • Emotional skills
  • Linguistics/language skills
  • Literacy 
  • Communication skills 
  • Technology skills and immersion
  • And more!
