Preschool Information

Philosophy: The San Rafael City Schools State Preschool program aims to prepare each child to be a lifelong learner. We provide opportunities to meet each child’s need for emotional, physical, social, cognitive and creative growth. We provide a safe, stable and culturally appropriate environment that actively involves children in acquiring the skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. We want our children to develop problem-solving skills, independence, perseverance and the skills to work positively and respectfully with others. Teachers actively nurture positive outcomes for children through effective teaching practices, well-planned and implemented curriculum and assessment.
