Oxnard School District - State Preschool Program
Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
We wish to introduce your family to our State Preschool Program. We have a unique program and we are looking forward to a rewarding friendship. Our staff is always pleased to work in cooperation with parents. We are very proud that each of our preschools reached an Advanced and/or High Quality status as rated by the Ventura County Office of Education - Quality Rating System.
Philosophy and Goals
Preschool programs are established for the provision of an enriched environment to benefit your child's intellectual, physical, emotional, social and cultural development. Increasingly, research shows that quality preschool programs reduce the need for remedial classes in subsequent grade levels. During their pre-kindergarten years, children develop characteristics which affect their lifelong ability to learn. The dual focus of our preschool programs is: Children, and their Parents. Children are provided with age and developmentally appropriate experiences, in literacy rich environments, by highly qualified personnel. We acknowledge that the family has the most influence on a child's learning potential. The participation of parents in classroom activities provides for observation of their own child's behavior in a formal learning setting and allows for the reinforcement of learning at home. We expect implementing a combined focus/goal will prepare students and families for the rigors of kindergarten and students step into kindergarten ready to learn.
