Preschool at Madison

The Early Years are Learning Years!

The early years are a crucial period of learning and development for children. Madison’s preschool program cares for each child in ways that are appropriate to his or her age and level of development, helping them build a strong foundation for learning and growth.

Serving children ages three through five, our preschool program uses the preschool CORE Knowledge curriculum. The goal of this model is to enable your children to achieve greater school success and social responsibility by giving them opportunities  to initiate and engage in learning activities that contribute to their cognitive, affective, and physical development.

All preschool CORE Knowledge skills are aligned with Arizona Early Childhood Education Standards. Areas of focus include:

  • Movement and coordination
  • Autonomy
  • Social skills
  • Work habits
  • Language and literacy
  • Mathematical reasoning and number sense
  • Orientation in time and space
  • Scientific reasoning and the physical world
  • Music
  • Visual arts
