About The Lil’ School Preschool and Daycare in Citrus Heights, CA
Inspired by several approaches, (Reggio Emilia, European Programs, and Creative Curriculum), we strive to give a well-rounded education that will allow your child to develop into a confident creative thinker.
Beyond the ABC’s and 123’s, your children will get an appreciation for the arts, the desire for physical activity, the curiosity to explore their surroundings, and an interest in the welfare of their community.
Your lil’ one will learn by being an active participant whose input will guide the class learning path:
Play-based activities will create many teachable moments using the children’s natural curiosity to lead the discussions. Our teachers act as facilitators, encouraging the children to attain their own knowledge while interacting with their friends.
We promote children’s education through the development of all their languages: expressive, communicative, symbolic, cognitive, ethical, metaphorical, logical, imaginative and relational. And we add an extra focus on literacy, science and mathematics for the pre-k program. Your child will be more than ready for Kindergarten (or TK).
Our active Parents’ Club, will connect you to your child’s education and allow you to get involved in shared celebrations!
