We are a public & Special Education Preschool run by the Emery County School district.  We are located throughout the district in five elementary schools.
Our program emphasizes the whole development of children.  We promote the physical development of children by encouraging healthy play, the cognitive development that prepares the child for Kindergarten, and the social emotional development that focuses on self-regulation, social skills, problem solving, and age-appropriate behavior.  We serve children with special needs and typically developing children ages 3-5.  Our program provides an individualized, fun and structured environment that strengthens each child’s speech, language, math, physical, literacy, social, and emotional skills.  The program follows the current researched based curriculum and standards designed to prepare children to enter elementary school.
