Preschool is often a child’s first introduction to a structured learning environment. Little Leaders Preschoolers at ALA Gilbert South develop social, sensory, and motor skills, which are key in a school environment. They also learn numbers and letters, along with the basics of how to use them in math, reading, and writing.
A positive kindergarten experience will set a child up for a love of learning and academic success. At ALA Gilbert South, we want to set the stage for that positive experience in our pre-k program, teaching foundational concepts (aligned with Arizona Early Learning Standards and American Leadership Academy's K-12 Core Knowledge Sequence model), and other foundational skills. Some of these skills include social interaction, emotional development, communication, literacy, science, technology, and health.
