GUSD Preschool is a licensed (license #198015719), non-profit program operated by the Glendora Unified School District. It is a tuition-based, self-supporting program, not funded by the school district or the state.
We offer a Toddler Program for children ages 18 months to 36 months. Potty training is included in the Toddler program. Please read the Toddler Option section in the parent handbook.
The Tiny Tartan Preschool Program is available to children ages 2 through 5 years of age. Children must be completely toilet-trained. Our preschool program is designed to enhance the development of the “Whole Child”. The four main areas of growth are social/emotional, cognitive, language, and physical. Our lesson plans are based on key experiences and include weekly goals and activities to develop language, music and movement, math and science concepts, reading readiness skills and creative art.
School-age Childcare Program
The School-age childcare program is available to the children enrolled in GUSD T-K through 8th grade. School-age childcare is offered at each elementary and middle school campus before and after school. During school breaks School-age childcare is held at Williams Educational Center. We provide care from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Preschool inclusion class consists of both children who are typical learners as well as children with special needs. The program focuses on growth in the key areas of development: cognitive, physical, language, and social emotional. This program offers a well-rounded education that will both inspire and develop students’ learning. Children enrolled in the inclusion program follow the SPROUTS hours of 8:30am to 12:15pm.
SPROUTS stands for Specialized Preschool Respecting Our Uniquely Talented Students. The programs operate for three and half hours (8:30am to 12:15pm). The preschool is a language rich program for 3 and 4 year old children taught by an early childhood special education teacher with the support of two instructional aides. The staff is knowledgeable on how to differentiate curriculum to fit each student’s needs through hands on activities, play and positive support from staff and family.
