As the Early Childhood Program Coordinator for Kingman Unified School District #20, I would like to welcome you to our Preschool Program and our Early Learning Center.
Our preschool is accredited by the National Accreditation Commission and licensed by the Arizona Department of Health services. A developmental curriculum is followed by the district preschool program. The developmental curriculum is influenced by Creative Curriculum and the Arizona Early Learning Standards. KUSD #20 offers preschool at 2 different sites in the district: Desert Willow Preschool (located at Desert Willow), and the Mt.Tipton Preschool (located in Dolan Springs). The Preschool Program offers free services to children ages 3 to 5 years old with developmental delays. A Grant Program is available to provide free preschool services for families in financial need. We also have a tuition program for typically developing children ages 3 to 5 years old. If you think your child may have delays or just want to get a better idea of your child’s current skills, call the preschool office to make an appointment for a free screening. We offer monthly screenings for 3 to 5 year olds.
Little Explorers Early Learning Center is a child care center that cares for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old located on the Kingman High School Campus. The Early Learning Center is also licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services. The Early Learning Center is a teaching lab for high school students taking classes in the area of Early Childhood. All High School students are instructed and supervised by qualified Little Explorers Early Learning Center staff. The Early Learning Center is currently participating in an improvement grant called Quality First that is offered through First Things First. The staff has been working closely with the Quality First Coach to make changes, such as our new toddler and preschool curriculum programs that will enhance the quality of care the children receive.
