About Our School

For more than four decades, Anne Sullivan Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten has proudly served the community, providing our students a solid foundation for lifelong learning.

Anne Sullivan Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten participates in Quality Start Riverside County, a comprehensive system which helps early learning programs improve their quality by offering coaching, training and professional development opportunities. In addition, it establishes evidence-based standards of quality and measures programs using these standards.

We were one of the first early childhood programs to earn accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation’s leading organization of early childhood professionals.

In 2011, our school campus added two new classrooms, funded by a grant received from First Five Riverside. This allowed us to offer our full- and half-day preschool and transitional kindergarten (TK) programs to more families.

Our school is open to all children regardless of race, creed, ethnic background, gender, or disability.


Our Philosophy

We work closely with parents to build a foundation for lifelong learning. We believe that children are unique individuals who develop in distinct developmental stages. A child’s sense of wonder and reverence for life — coupled with respect for others and joy for learning — is to be continuously nourished.

Community Outreach

The school experience at Anne Sullivan Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten is integrated into the life of the communities of southwest Riverside County. Our Open Houses, Parent Workshops, and Staff Development Workshops attract parents as well as members of our community who work with young children. These activities are an opportunity for the community to recognize the potential in its youngest members.

Vegetables are not the only things thriving in the garden: the children are learning the joys of gardening and the wonder of nature.
