Mesa Public Schools Preschool Programs are diverse and inclusive. Our inclusive Early Learning Programs celebrate the uniqueness and ability levels of all children.

Young children of all abilities learn and grow together in high quality inclusive classrooms where each child receives the necessary support, equipment, and materials to access their curriculum and meaningfully participate in their educational environment.

MPS ensures all preschool children have full access to and participation in the range of activities provided.

This play-based program is aligned with the Arizona Department of Education Early Learning Standards, with a focus on critical thinking skills and social/emotional development. Studies are explored by students using a variety of learning styles and modalities, which in turn, ignites curiosity and encourages sustained attention. The program uses The Creative Curriculum. Students with and without developmental delays work together and grow in one inclusive environment.  Instruction is individualized based upon ongoing progress monitoring (Teaching Strategies GOLD) so the teacher knows what a child knows and what they are ready to learn next.  GOLD is an authentic, ongoing observational system for assessing children from birth through Third Grade and is completely aligned with both the curriculum and the AZ Early Learning Standards.Assessment and consistent alignment helps teachers observe children in the context of everyday experiences, which is an effective way to learn what they know and can do.

KinderU preschool has a variety of options to meet your needs, including part-day, Montessori and preschool with childcare.

KinderU preschool supports the MPS Promise – Every student in Mesa Public Schools is known by name, served by strength and need, and graduates ready for college, career and community.
