Our child-centered approach gives children the opportunity to learn through play and a variety of
enriching experiences in a nurturing and supportive active learning environment. The children at GUSD
Preschool learn to appreciate the cultural uniqueness of our community through integrated experiences
and activities. Children are encouraged to develop problem-solving and self-help skills that will prepare
them to enter kindergarten. The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated
learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths
and interests. This curricula applies the latest theory and research on best practices in teaching and
learning and the content standards developed by states and professional organizations.
