Community Education Preschool (CEP) & Preschool Development Grant (PDG) Preschool
The Community Education Preschool (CEP) Program is a 3 hour program, 4 days a week, for our 4 and 5 year old children.
The Preschool Development Grant Preschool (PDG) is a 6 hour program, 4 days a week, for our 4 and 5 year old children.
The CEP and PDG programs are designed to meet the needs of students with general education and special education services.
Our classroom consists of 1 teacher and 1 educational assistant. Speech Pathologists or Occupational Therapists may also come into the CEP program to support small groups of students, based on need.
Teachers develop lesson plans based upon the Arizona Early Childhood Learning Standards (AzELS).
Students follow a daily routine based on our classroom schedule. The schedule consists of learning centers, 1:1 teacher and student time, group activities, such as: circle time, snack, and outside time.
Teaching Strategies GOLD is used by the state of Arizona and Glendale Elementary as our system of monitoring general preschool development of all preschool students.
The determination of what preschool program is most appropriate will be done in conjunction with an educational team.
