Amador County State Preschool Program is a State-subsidized half-day program at four sites in the county. Our preschool mission is to provide highly qualified learning experiences to eligible three- and four-year olds with a core curriculum that is culturally, developmentally and linguistically appropriate. Snack/meals are provided and there are several field trips during the year to enhance the classroom learning.
We are currently incorporating the STEAM curriculum model (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) into our lessons in best preparing our students for a successful kindergarten and elementary school future.
