All of our preschool programs are based on the philosophy that children learn by playing and doing with intentional interactions and questioning by their teachers. Our program procedures and practices are built around the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Our community preschool is available at both of our schools. Community preschool is offered during the normal school day where students learn in an exciting safe environment. Our fees for the community preschool program are budget friendly, and when compared to other traditional preschool programs very reasonable. Nadaburg is a DES contractor, and thus accepts DES subsidies.
First Things First/Quality First
We currently offer First Things First scholarships at both Nadaburg and Desert Oasis Elementary. Families must qualify for scholarships financially. Scholarships are issued by the school and applications can be found on our community education enrollment page. Scholarships cover the cost 100% of the tuition. Desert Oasis Elementary was recently accepted in to the Quality First program, and we anticipate eligible for scholarships beginning sometime in the spring of 2017.
Early Head Start
Nadaburg was awarded a grant through the Maricopa County Department of Health and Human Services to operate two early head start classrooms. Early Head Start is for children ages 1-3 years. Families must qualify and enroll through Catholic Social Services. The Early Head Start Community Partnership program is for working families or those pursuing an education. There is no cost for Early Head Start families to attend preschool.
