Early Education Program
Welcome to the Early Education Program in San Jose Unified.
Our State Preschool’s mission is to provide high quality early education for children and families, which supports the development of life long learners in our diverse community.
We do this by upholding the unique needs of each child through best practices for young learners, and couple it with ongoing authentic assessments. We believe in the importance of valuing children’s culture, language experiences, and knowledge, and that children have the ability to develop social cognitive and physical skills through a variety of learning experiences.
Our program is designed to prepare your child with the critical foundations needed for his or hers learning years, kindergarten through adulthood. Children who are healthy, and emotionally, socially, and cognitively ready for school are much more likely to have successful school and life experiences. We hope that your child’s experience in our State Preschool program will be rewarding, and an investment in his or her educational future and success.

The first five years of a child’s life are fundamentally important. They are the foundation that shapes children’s future health, happiness, growth, development and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and in life in general.
