At Aspen View Academy Pre-K we strive to provide a planned educational program for pre-elementary children using the Core Knowledge educational program. Our program emphasizes the key relationship between child, parent, and the learning environment. Research has shown that the most significant influences on children’s lives come from their home and especially from the parents, who are the child’s primary teachers.
Our goal is to foster the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth of each child-to emphasize total development. We recognize that all children are individuals with specific needs, we therefore attempt to offer rich and enriching experiences in a sensible progression, allowing the children to proceed at their own pace without pressure. In recent years there has been increased recognition of the benefits of early childhood education. Aspen View Academy embraces a vision of a preschool program utilizes these critical first years to give children a head start in all areas of development. Fostering a love for lifelong learning. 
Our program strives to meet the developmental needs of all children in a creative, nurturing way. Each child is given maximum consideration as an individual. The classes are professionally staffed with early childhood educators and specialists, working in an enriched educational environment.
 Active learning is an integral part of our program, since it is the child’s way of experimenting and learning to cope with the surroundings. Through hands-on activities children gain confidence in themselves, learn to use varied materials, take turns, share, be leaders and followers, and make choices. Staff members are involved with the children, facilitating and challenging each child at his/her appropriate level.


What makes a great preschool?  At Aspen Academy Pre-K program we believe it starts with providing a safe and caring atmosphere where children and families feel welcome and important. We recognize and value the trust placed in us to be one of a child’s first teacher.

Our developmentally appropriate program believes in supporting the whole child. Our program teaches through practices that understand a child learns best when their mental, emotional, physical and social needs are met in loving way. We understand that children come from all walks of life. As children join our program their individual differences are celebrated. We take joy in getting to know each child and we value lessons learned from each of our Aspen View Academy families.

Each classroom provides experiences that entice early learners into play experiences including art, science, reading, writing, math, dramatic play and physical activity. Early academics are shared and taught with the support of highly trained staff that prepares lessons to reach each child’s learning style. This is accomplished by embracing the theory of Multiple Intelligence's.

We believe that every child learns in different ways. By creating lessons and play experiences that reach the different types of learners, we know every child can grow at their own pace, in their own way. Led by their own curiosity students discover something new every day. Our goal is to teach a love for learning that will be the foundation for a lifelong learner.

Families play a vital role in our program. Children feel safe and can achieve success when they see their parents and teachers as partners. We welcome families into the classroom. Their involvement supports staff and builds a community of caregivers around each child.
