First School provides a successful and well established approach to preschool education where your child will experience an intimate learning atmosphere unparalleled by any other desert preschool program, in an environment of perfect balance of academic and social instruction. With high but realistic standards, our program is designed to give your child a solid academic foundation. In a stimulating and creative atmosphere, the small class size will encourage your child to listen, learn and.. interact with our skilled staff, with each class being tailored for your childs specific age. First School of the Desert maintains a six to one ratio (six children to one teacher) in its toddler classes (18 months). First School maintains a 12 to one ratio (12 children to one teacher) in all preschool classrooms, so every child gets the personal and individual attention required.
At First School, we recognize the child's family as a necessary partner in the education process, and hence are committed to working with parents to build a strong academic, developmental and social foundation for their children. The wonderful thing about First School is that while our students are achieving these great developmental and academic goals, they are having fun while they learn. In addition to the academic approach, we develop your children's social skills with combined emphasis on academic and social skills, leading to well-balanced results. Your child will be academically prepared and socially adjusted to face the challenges in the elementary school years.
Your child's health and safety are paramount and that is why all of our staff members are certified in Pediatric C.P.R. and in California Childcare Preventive Health and Safety!
I would recommend First School to anyone. Over the last two years, our daughter is enrolled there and we have found that all the teachers are wonderful as well as the directors. We have always felt comfortable talking with them about anything concerning our daughter and know that she is in a safe, fun environment where she has positive experiences that are building her self confidence and self esteem. She has tons of friends and has a lot of fun at school. We are also confident that she is getting a great early childhood education and that she will be more than adequately prepared for the elementary school years. She knows all of her letters and sounds and can write her name and knows the numbers to twenty, plus many other things. Every mother knows how happy she feels when she knows her child is as happy as they can be. I know that First School has achieved this with our daughter.
