General School Mission

Poway Unified School District preschools have used Scholastic’s Early Childhood Program curriculum since 1997. The central goal of the program is to help guarantee that young children will develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and life habits to become successful learners, especially in their language and literacy development. The program is designed to ensure that children's language and early reading skills will develop in accordance with the four critical areas outlined by the Early Reading First legislation: oral language, phonological awareness, print awareness, and alphabetic knowledge. The curriculum emphasizes language development and early literacy integrated in the following areas: mathematics, science, social studies, the arts, and physical, personal and social development.

The preschool program supports children's development of knowledge, skills, and processes that will help them make sense of themselves and the world around them. It provides young children with informed instruction that supports them as they actively investigate novel concepts, skills, and processes and reexamine known ones.
