Early Education Mission Statement

The Rialto Unified School District Early Education Program provides developmentally appropriate, high quality early education services to children and families in safe, nurturing environments that will promote the well-being of the whole child and prepare each child for success in transitional kindergarten or kindergarten.


Program Philosophy

Rialto State Preschool is an important building block for each child’s successful journey through school. Optimum growth for a child evolves from positive, supportive, responsive, and individualized relationships with adults and other children. Self-esteem, social competence, and intellectual growth blossom in an environment of immersion in developmentally appropriate activities and materials that guide the child to be actively involved in discovery learning. Guidance techniques must be positive and accompanied by rational explanations of expectations. Parent involvement in providing a positive, supportive, responsive home environment that also promotes positive self-esteem and confidence is critical for a child to grow into a successful person. Our Preschool staff is trained in early childhood growth and development and skilled at teaching young children. Rialto State Preschools believed in the dignity of each person, child and adult. Each person associated with the Rialto Preschool Program shall be treated with respect and dignity at all times. Rialto State Preschool Program shall provide a safe, healthful and comfortable learning environment. (Title 5, Section 18273)


Preschool Goals and Objectives

The major goals for preschool are to develop oral language skills, group socialization skills, and academic readiness skill. Preschool children learn to make choices and be responsible for their actions in the classroom. They develop creativity through playing with blocks, painting, collage, dramatic play, cut and paste and clay. They develop their academic readiness skills through mathematic manipulatives, puzzles, identifying patterns, differentiating between sounds, and awareness of how print works; they learn critical thinking skills through problem solving activities.
