Helen Wilcox Preschool
Welcome to the Palermo Union Elementary School District (PUESD) Preschool! We are excited to work with you and your child to develop the foundation for your child’s future academic success. We strive to offer a quality program that recognizes and values each child’s unique traits and potential. The curriculum is child centered and organized around the following basic skill areas: English language development, early literacy (rhyming, letter knowledge and sounds), early writing, children’s literature, science, number sense, art, and music. Our preschool curriculum and instructional methods are based on the California Preschool Curriculum Framework and the California Preschool Foundations developed by the Department of Education. We look forward to a year of amazing growth and social development for your child.
PUSD Preschool Programs offer a developmentally appropriate, multicultural, early childhood education experience. We refrain from any religious practice or instruction and our programs do not discriminate on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race, ancestry, national origin, religion or mental/physical disabilities. We adhere to all state, county, and district policies regarding child care licensing, fire, safety, and nutrition. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment in which all children have the opportunity to learn and develop.
All preschool teachers and instructional aides are fully qualified to teach preschool-aged children. In order to ensure your child’s success, they are committed to nurturing a collaborative partnership with parents and families!
