Welcome from the CPA Pre-K Team

We are ready to start a great year of adventures in learning!

Welcome to Chandler Park Academy Great Start to Readiness preschool program. At Chandler Park Academy Great Start to Readiness program we will provide your children with quality education. We have amazing teachers that will implement developmentally appropriate practices that will allow your children to soar. We provide wonderful adult and child-interaction along with an enriched learning environment, which supports all learners. We instruct using “HighScope” curriculum. Our children deserve a high-quality, equitable early education. In a “HighScope” preschool program, teachers ignite children’s interest in learning by creating an environment that encourages them to explore learning materials and interact with adults and peers. We focus on supporting early learners as they make decisions, build academic skills, and develop both socially and emotionally, in order to become part of a classroom community. 

Chandler Park Academy GSRP program is pleased to serve your families and children with wonderful care, support and resources that best supports your families. Please take some time to look through our website for more information about our program; I am looking forward to a long and successful relationship with the Chandler Park Academy community.
