Step Up Preschool
Step Up Preschool is for students between the ages of three and five years of age. We provide a learning environment that supports positive, responsive, individualized instruction through activities that promote self-esteem, social skills, and intellectual development through a continuum of programs ranging from self-contained to moderate/ severe to full inclusion. We incorporate developmentally, appropriate activities that enhance learning through expression, discovery and play.
Our preschool teachers have an early childhood special education credential with bachelors/masters degrees. We have a speech language pathologist and psychologist on staff. Our preschool program won the golden bell from the State of California School Boards Association, 31st Annual Golden Bell Awards - 2010 for outstanding special education program.
